Shape is a design focused joinery and fit out business. 

Shape was founded by Rob and Rich and an architectural practice led by Joe and Lizzie.
This creative collaboration has allowed Shape to combine the directors' previous architectural, design and joinery expertise. Our team offers a dedicated, enthusiastic and dynamic approach. We pride ourselves on our exacting standards of craftsmanship and service.

Shape London has been assisting with the delivery of high end residential and commercial joinery fit-out contracts for a number of architecture practices in London. We provide designers and architects with the means to progress their ideas from concept to technical build stage by creating the crucial link between design and manufacture. We understand the role of the architect and serve to alleviate co-ordination and procurement pressures with the delivery of our product. 

Everything we do is designed and made to the highest standard of craftsmanship and care. We support design professionals to ensure that all joinery pieces are functional yet beautiful, with each design unique for each particular project. We understand space and the importance of detail, as much as the need to deliver a commercially viable product with a smooth production phase.
