Alex Simpson from Vee8Design explained the ethos behind his designs: “I design and make various items of furniture and decorative pieces based around automotive and mechanical parts and objects.  The principal piece is the engine block table, taking what would otherwise be a scrap engine and transforming it into not only a functional table but also an eye catching piece of design.  I was delighted to be contacted by Footman James to create this bespoke piece.”

David Bond, Footman James’ Director, said: “We’d like to encourage as many enthusiasts to enter his fantastic competition!  Alex is an amazing designer, he recently made a sofa for our reception area out of seats from an classic Rolls Royce!  Good luck!”
