Custhom is a research-based design practice working with handmade processes.
By experimenting with tactility and graphic-led design the studio has created a collection of wallpapers, ceramics, textiles and designed products that are all sold internationally.
Custhom has a detailed approach to materials and processes. This means that the subtleties of material properties are explored in response to each product or brief.
The studio was established by Nathan Philpott and Jemma Ooi in 2010 and now works with clients on concepts for branding, retail spaces, restaurants and domestic projects, often in collaboration with respected architects and interior designers.
Jemma and Nathan met at the Royal College of Art (RCA) and both run programmes at the RCA and the University of the Arts, London, respectively. They set up Studio Custhom to respond to a growing interest in larger design consultancy projects. The studio has an intellectually rich and creatively strong approach to solving each brief independently.
