Terence Woodgate

Terence is one of the worlds top Industrial designers and has produced a number of iconic designs for SCP, PUNT and ESTABLISHED & SONS, and I was fortunate to work with him on the INFLUENCE range for Habitat.

INFLUENCE had already been a best selling shelving range, and part of the strategy to grow the family and increase sales was to add in various storage elements. It was one of the first products I developed in my career, and I was fortunate to work with someone of the calibre of Terence who took the time to help guide me through the process. INFLUENCE is still a range and learning experience I am very proud of, and one that is the cornerstone of my career.
