Shape is a design focused joinery and fit out business. 

We consider not only the quality and design of our products, but also the spaces within which they exist. Our joinery and internal spatial environments are responsive to our clients' needs. Our designs empower the user and offer sensitive design solutions. All pieces are functional yet beautiful, with each design unique for each particular client and context.

Shape’s creative partnership was born from a specialist CNC cutting company 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.
