Rafe Mullarkey Furniture
The central London workshop focuses on the strength and purpose of cabinet making whilst embracing new technologies to produce work that varies from limited editions through to bespoke site specific installations.
Rafe Mullarkey's design ethic stems from an understanding and respect for materials and the skills needed to transform them. The purpose of the piece and how it is made are of equal significance.
With over fifteen years working internationally within the Fine Arts, Rafe has gained the necessary experience and knowledge to build up a fully equipped workshop with a small team of skilled professionals that fabricates artwork and gallery related furniture for varying eminent museums and galleries, as well as commercial retail displays and office interiors.
Clients include Tate Modern, Tate Britain, The Conran Store, Gagosian Gallery, Fidelity International, Timothy Taylor, Marian Goodman Gallery, Inigo Philbrick, Lime Wharf, Machines Room, KS Objectiv, Cockpit Arts, Derek Hall Interiors, The Hayward Gallery, TreesLounge, Hus Gallery, Robilant & Voena, The Carhartt Store and The National Gallery.
As a City and Guilds trained cabinet maker, Rafe works with many materials including solid wood, all metals and is an officially approved contractor for Corian. Working with international brands and artists the workshop enjoys providing bespoke creative solutions that fulfil each client's specific needs from the first drawing to the final installation.
All work is insured by Hallett Independent Art Insurance.
