Mooi means beautiful.
Why bespoke and not custom?
Custom means just not directly off the shelf. Custom is made in a factory, cut by a computer, sanded by a machine, finished by a robot — every step a different operator. I make furniture like a Savile Row tailor makes a suit. With eye and hand and heart. For you and only you. By me and only me. Bespoke.
Why so expensive?

Who buys your work?
Tech execs love me. There’s an actual rocket scientist—it’s the attention to detail ¯\_(ツ)_/¯
And people who appreciate meticulous and out of the box. Most prefer an NDA, but Guggenheim, Resnick, Von Furstenberg; like that. My shop’s in Malibu; you know.
So who’s the guy?
That would be me. Clif Brigden. Hello. Londoner originally. California, 25 years. I make furniture because I love making furniture. I’ve been a musician, an engineer, a producer, a remixer, a programmer, a designer, a tech consultant, and a tech entrepreneur. If you were partying in the eighties and nineties, you’ve heard my tunes. If you’ve ever used a smartphone or downloaded a song, you know my work—it’s deep in both of those systems.
