anything but ordinary

Losing our spark terrifies us into doing different. We’re creative souls and anything but ordinary is what drives us on to keep producing the greatest work of our lives.

Something different. Something that stands out. That stuns people. Something people lust over. Fear is good. Feel it and embrace it. It is your friend and ally.

Allermuir is...

Allermuir is... design,

design, design.

You can make things well with tools, equipment, techniques, technology and machinery. But without ideas that have been inspired, agonised over, adapted, shared, explored and crafted, you’re just one of many. This requires a creative, collaborative culture where design takes a lead to give you an edge.

We have strength, wit and perseverance. We have ambition, a conscience, a love of art and a team of brilliant people, but the one thing that unites us all, above all else, is design.



Mark Gabbertas

Mark Gabbertas is a furniture designer with a different perspective. After ten years in advertising, he trained and worked as cabinet maker, before establishing the Gabbertas studio in 2001. The intent is to create character through simplicity via the rigorous pursuit of designs that have both an elegance and a lasting aesthetic… it is all too easy to shock, but much more difficult to please.

“Ours is not an obsession with form as an end in itself, but with the emotion it incites. Our work is rooted in the conviction that furniture has the ability to influence how people behave, perform, and interact, but most important, how they feel.”

Mark’s approach has earned his designs for Allermuir numerous including a Red Dot and Design Guild Mark for the design of Haven and more recently a Design Guild Mark and a Silver Best of NeoCon Award for the design of Mozaik.

Orai uses a restrained, minimal aesthetic to create its architectural profile. Simple, elegant and timeless, the design works in a variety of interior spaces. The considered tailoring and gentle profiling of the upholstery allow the sofa to maintain its comfort and form even in high use areas.

The design by Mark Gabbertas achieves a deliberate balance between the classic and contemporary and is available as single-seat armchair, 2-seat, 3-seat sofa as well as a corner sofa. Orai is the cousin to the Oran range of upholstery and uses the same aluminium frame and cast aluminium legs to carry the slightly more compact and slimline, but equally welcoming upholstery volumes.

Characterised by the combination of a soft appearance and feel, with a precise and defined upholstery detail, Oran is a modular sofa system designed to work in both workplace and hospitality environments.

The rounded and voluminous interior of the sofa is restrained by a defined seam, that leads the eye with ease around the sofa profile. Carried by a minimal powder coated aluminium frame and cast aluminium corner leg, the system allows the creation of an infinite number of configurations from a limited number of individual seat units.

The Mozaik seating family is made up of three principal shapes. A small soft square stool and soft rectangular bench available in two heights and a large low soft square stool.
