This is my late father who passed away nearly 7 years ago. He was a master carpenter and still my absolute inspiration for the furniture we are designing today. We worked on all sorts of projects together (on the right we were fitting bell stocks in a church tower). I’m pretty sure he would love what we are doing with CNC now, although I could still do with the benefit of his experience, as his knowledge of woodwork was unsurpassed. Wish I could show you my Instagram account – miss you Dad.

Sam is Helmm's chief designer and inventor of our S-Desks and Laptop Stands. Sam grew up working with wood in his Father's kitchen workshops but went on to study graphic design and after a few years working in London agencies set up his own graphic, exhibition and product design business in 2000. Gradually the business evolved into a digital agency but the calling to work with wood again was too strong and in 2013 Sam started designing furniture again in his spare time. In 2015 his first concept prototypes were produced and now Sam is focussing on designing amazing furniture that improves the user's wellbeing and makes a design statement in any space. Sam is husband to Kia, Helmm's marketing expert, and a devoted father. He likes to spend his spare time drawing, shooting video and photos and is a bit fanatical about bicycles.
