DIY project: Bauhaus dresser
Inspired by the Bauhaus school, CUSTHOM's dresser embodies the company's unique and arresting techniques and is imbued with their signature graphic style. Nathan Philpott and Jemma Ooi met while studying at the Royal College of Art and founded CUSTHOM in 2009. As well as creating their own collection, the duo have completed commissions and created bespoke designs for The Design Museum, Liberty and Anthropologie among many others.
