ashortwalk is a product design and manufacturing company based near Truro, Cornwall. Started in 2003 by Dan who left his previous job as a product designer/inventor at Dyson and moved to Cornwall in order to realise a long-held desire: to set up a business, and live, ‘ashortwalk’ from the sea.
They’ve come a long way in 9 years, from their initial range of tide and time clocks. ashortwalk now offer a range of pioneering ECO products…from house numbers and house signs, to unique tableware all sold throughout the world via some very respected retail brands.
The key to staying competitive in the global market from a shed in Cornwall has always been to design and manufacture unique, functional products. They are no longer in a shed, but their philosophy is still the same, and most importantly, are ashortwalk from the beach!
