Simon and Ben Fowler first met when they worked together in the Habitat design studio. Simon’s training as a cabinet maker, together with an acute sense of quality and care for detail, have made him one of the country’s top designers. Since establishing his own internationally renowned design firm, all of Simon’s work has a common thread of classic craftsmanship.


Products to his name include Habitat’s most successful Radius range, aircraft seating for Virgin Airways and the beautiful Theo range of contract seating and tables for Chorus.

Ben and Simon have worked together developing prototypes over the years and it is fantastic to have Simon designing his own products especially for the Marque collection.

Design: Ben Fowler

Drawing its character from a combed chamfer detail, this collection uses an extremely strong and expressive chamfered comb joint. Made using angled cutters to produce an elegant slim tapered leg detail at each corner.

Design: John Weaver

Once a common detail of British classical furniture, John has re-imagined the ball foot for the 21st century. As a practical and uplifting decorative motif, the ball was recognized by mid century designers as an eye catching component whether in hall stands, clock surrounds, chairs or tables.

Design: Simon Pengelly

Lean as its name suggests, riffs on the idea of a raked leg. Simon has taken this classic idea, to its natural conclusion by making a series of products which are entirely defined by the angle of the leg. The end grain runs throughout the tops, tying everything together beautifully.

Design: Ben Fowler

A three legged table taking its name from the famous Isle of Man triskelion. The three nesting sections emphasise the different wood grains and colours as they sweep round the tops of the tables supported by legs, curved to match the top.
