Ged Kennett Contemporary Metals
Ged Kennett lives and works at Nettlecombe, a small country estate on the edge of Exmoor in SW England.
He has been metalworking since 1995 and started his own business in 1997. After a few years of working to commission, making fine hand forged domestic ironwork, he discovered a need for beautifully designed and crafted cabinet fittings and started to concentrate in this area. He has been making handles ever since.
Originally working on his own, in a small, dark workshop, his business steadily grew. He now has two workshops, full of beautiful old machinery, two full time workshop assistants and regular help with admin and packing. In 2009 he formed Ged Kennett Contemporary Metals Ltd, dedicated to producing the finest quality fittings both in terms of design and manufacture. They specialise in textured cabinet hardware made in brass and stainless steel. They also offer a custom design service and Ged’s happy to adapt any of his existing designs or can work in partnership with you to create something completely unique.
Ged and his team are true craftsmen.
A design-led business based on the edge of Sherwood Forest, in the heart of England. Kast are specialists in the design and manufacture of contemporary concrete bathware – they design and make everything from their factory in the UK and deliver worldwide.
Kast’s founder, Tim Bayes, fell in love with concrete over 20 years ago. Growing up in Switzerland, he was inspired by their use of concrete, manipulating it into unique forms. Drawn to the purity of this material, Tim realised the potential it had for contemporary product design. With a natural affinity towards engineering and a degree in Fine Art, he began working with this ‘liquid stone’ and was convinced it could become the ideal material for interior products. From designing furniture to creating interior surfaces, realising this vision took many years of development, researching and refining both the precise mix of concrete and complex casting processes. Tim grew his team and continued to innovate, pushing the boundaries of how concrete can be used.
Over the years Kast have learned to pare back what they do, and hone what they make. When they started there was no-one to follow, because no-one was making and designing concrete products like they were. These days they focus relentlessly on one thing – making the most beautiful concrete bathware anywhere in the world.
That’s what they do. That’s all they do. And that’s enough.

In the UK and Europe a towel dryer is an essential component of any bathroom. This is because it allows damp towels to dry in such a way that they remain soft and gentle, in readiness for reuse with no need for costly and unnecessary laundry. A towel warmer also ensures that your towels are warm and cosy, ready for when you step out of the shower or tub.
Fortunately, with Vogue you can enjoy both of those benefits from just one unit.
