Hardman Design Finds a New Home in France
Over a decade after its founding in Berlin, Hardman Design has opened a new studio in the scenic region of Pays Basque in the southwest of France. The new location is perfect for promoting creativity and originality to flourish, with its proximity to the Atlantic Ocean and surrounding beauty.
From Berlin to Biarritz
British designer and founder Liam Hardman specialises in creating hardwood furniture from high-quality handpicked wood, which he has perfected, transforming them into design pieces that are modern but stand the test of time. After years spent in the Bauhaus city of Berlin, he relocated and opened an additional atelier in the French Basque region in 2020 to provide local customers with another studio creating in-house designs in a unique setting. The region straddles France and Spain and, with its unique history and impressive buildings, breathes fresh air into the brand. Setting up roots in Pays Basque reflects the originality of Hardman Design and how we go against the grain to work directly with wood suppliers where each panel ends up in the hands of master carpenters. This bespoke process culminates in exquisite collections that we will continue to work on with renewed passion from our studio.
Showroom, Head Office & Atelier
The new atelier and head office in Biarritz will be the ultimate display of our brand ethos. With a well-designed space that boasts light and exudes warmth, we look forward to welcoming visitors to browse our collections while being able to imagine how each piece will elevate their home.
The new studio is the perfect backdrop for creating photo and video content so our clients can get a realistic, up-close view of our handmade collections. Witnessing the craftsmanship with all the details of our exceptional quality woods, from walnut to oak and ash, will bring our designs closer to customers from all over Europe.
Biarritz Offers Balance
Creating a truly authentic design takes a work-life balance, which is precisely what the new location in Biarritz offers. Born in Berlin amongst the cutting edge, Hardman Design has been on a journey that has brought the brand to a region of France where nature meets architecture and heritage meets modern. The calmer pace of life allows the team to hone in on their craftsmanship and absorb inspiration from the peaceful lifestyle Biarritz offers.
Every design house evolves and adapts over time, which is why Hardman Design is excited to welcome customers to be a part of this new phase in Biarritz. We will also continue to service customers in Germany, the U.K, Austria, and Switzerland from our Berlin studio.
