Elements of Action is a collaborative design practice working in furniture design, landscape architecture and project management.
We hand-craft beautiful objects and design contemporary spaces. We build nature into design. We design and curate bespoke furniture and gifts with clever details and push the boundaries of design to create dramatic contemporary works with deep roots in the local landscape, materials and traditional techniques.
All work is designed and handmade in Ireland by our partners Edward Coveney and Esther Gerrard. Elements of Action outsource a small portion of work to local master crafts.
EOA are members of the Institute Designers Ireland and the Landscape Institute. Our work has been awarded an IDI award 2016. An award in Domestic Interiors and a commendation in furniture design.
