welcome to block


we are a creative studio, designing unique home and deskware in the UK

Block was formed in 2000 by designer Tara Ashe, with the purpose of bringing colour to the fore of intelligent product design.

Block values

BlockĀ is now a team of designers creating products that promote a ‘life in colour’

Block Palette 2016-17

Every product begins with a carefully created palette of colours as strong and confident as our products

Colour choices

Tara grew up in Belfast and recalls sketching the imposing cranes at Harland and Wolff dockyard again and again.

Following the completion of her studies at Art School, Tara completed a course in Engineering; an unusual education that has forged a unique designer with the dual methodology of artist and engineer.

Tara’s childhood fascination with unflinching colour and line is now evident in every Block product.

Tara Ashe Sketch

Tara is still a avid sketcher, attending life-drawing classes as an exercise in form and proportion.

Block is now internationally represented in stores varying from The Conran Shop, MoMA New York and the Royal Academy in London.
