Adam Knight Gibbons B.A.
Adam grew up in Bath and went to Kingswood School on Lansdown. He founded Adam Gibbons Fine Bespoke Carpentry (previously KDI Bespoke Carpentry) in 1998 after completing a degree in Product Design at Central Saint Martin’s School of Art and Design in Holborn Central London.
The company was based and traded almost exclusively in London until 2008, at which time Adam then relocated the business to the West country, just outside of Bath. This was the base for the company until September 2016 when the company and Adams family took the giant leap in relocating to just outside Bergerac in the Dordogne SW France.
What Adam Says
“Our job here is enviable; I personally could not imagine doing anything else. Crafting pieces of cabinetry for people is rewarding and enjoyable. The passion I have for my work come through in the resulting furniture. The aim is always to produce an asset to every home, built with love and care so that when the work is complete; I know the furniture will reward the client and stand the test of time.”
All in the design
Adam's love of both the aesthetic and mechanical aspects of design enables him to offer a complete and innovative approach to clients' furniture or storage requirements. During the initial site visit and consultation, conceptual ideas are generated through discussion as well as a site survey being carried out. It can be very helpful at this stage if you have to hand some images of things you like. Once back in the office, CAD line drawings will be developed along with a quotation for the proposed work. You can expect your drawing pack and quotation within ten days. A nominal fee of €200 is charged for your drawing pack, a cost which will be deducted from any resulting work. After this, once all is satisfactory, it’s off to the work shop!
In the Workshop
This is where the real work happens. The vast majority of the fabrication process takes place here, off-site so keeping the dust and disturbance for you to a minimum.
