We design beautiful spaces, places and things.

Graven is an independent design studio owned and run by designers. Founded in 1986 our studio works in over thirty countries with both global brands and ambitious start-ups. We understand how businesses operate and how brands strategically help them grow.

In addition to the traditional hand skills of drawing and making we also use state-of-the-art immersive 3D visualisation to inhabit, test and fine-tune projects before they are built—it’s also a great tool for engaging with stakeholders.

Our ‘create and automate’ approach quickly and cost-effectively maximises our experience by using the best software to prototype and deliver production packages.

We have the in-house skills, knowledge and talent to ensure good projects become really great, including by designing bespoke furnishings, textiles and floor and wall coverings. We’re also known for being good people to work with and we can support your team wherever you are.
