Blackbird Competition

Blackbird Bespoke are specialists in distinctive and contemporary metal furniture, all of which is designed and handcrafted at their Central London design workshop in SW8; a place they’ve called home for the last 60 years. 

Blackbird's unique collection of metal tables, mirrors, lighting and accessories are made to order by their team of skilled artisans, combining traditional blacksmithing skills with modern propriety tools to create sculptural pieces of furniture that will stand the test of time.

With simplicity at the core of their design, they take inspiration from the world around them using shapes, colours and textures to create statement pieces. In addition to their own collections, they also work with architects, interior designers, buyers and specifiers in creating bespoke, one-off commissions based on original ideas and designs.

The Competition required KLC students to design a mainly metal chair which can be either a standalone feature piece, or part of a set designed to be used at a table.

 And the winner is...
