Welch Bespoke was born from the idea that beautifully crafted objects can have a positive impact on our emotions and well-being.
We spend most of our time indoor’s and our experience of light plays a fundamental role in managing stress and anxiety.
Each design is impeccably finished and handmade with a high level of craftsmanship and respect for material. Inspired by the complex patterns and structures found in nature, these lamps seek to transform your daily experience of light, by adding playfulness and joy to your interiors.
Welch Bespoke was founded by Henry Welch in 2020 in Camberwell, London.
Henry’s exceptional craftsmanship and extensive knowledge of fabrication methods were acquired through a BA in Model Making at the Arts University Bournemouth, and further honed through four years as a maker at the architectural firm Foster and Partners. Bearing witness to the waste of the architectural industry, Henry felt compelled to give new life to leftover materials, leading him to set up his studio and fulfil his passion to produce sculptural lampshades for interiors.
Welch Bespoke aims to establish a dialogue between the two mediums of CNC machining and hand-building techniques. The results are objects which honour the beauty of craft while pushing the boundaries of material properties, in the belief that craftsmanship methods can evolve alongside computer aided manufacturing.
