Mark Robinson is a designer, maker, and writer. He’s focused on the relationship between craft and modern design, how these two contrasting worlds clash and collide.

In 2007 Mark founded OEN (the189.com), a website created to showcase his inspiration and influences. Over the years the website has progressed in to a shop and now sells a selection of everyday design and craft, show­cas­ing a variety of well-made con­tem­po­rary objects that have clarity and integrity at their core.

This site was made as an outlet for my ceramic work, as well as my film photography, such as highlighting my day to day travels and exploration in to the fields of design and craft.
