We are not
looking for ordinary.
Ermak projects are enriched by a genuine passion for the areas we work within so it is essential our partners feel the same. We want to encourage bold ideas and disruptive behaviour so if you are looking for a quiet journey together we are probably not the company for you.
ALESSANDRO ISOLA STUDIO is a multidisciplinary design practice based in London, specialising in architecture, interiors, and product design. With his creatively like-minded team, Alessandro works internationally with current projects in England, United States, Switzerland, Russia and Italy. His projects and products have been exhibited, published, and awarded internationally.
For much of his production, Alessandro returns to his native Italy to source true independent craftsmen, who over generations have perfected a particular craft technique. This bygone artisan know-how and timeless quality is sensitively paired with latter-day advancements in technology, to turn ideas into reality.

Sarah Myerscough Gallery
Contemporary Craft & DesignABOUT
SARAH MYERSCOUGH GALLERY represents highly-skilled international artist-designer-makers, whose practices are grounded in craft-making traditions but defined by contemporary innovation and invention. Through diverse making processes, they collectively embrace the complex intersections between history and future; hand and technology; form and function. By curating a specialist programme of exhibitions, the gallery aims to support this movement within the arts, which advocates the importance of retaining elements of the past, to mould a vision of the future.
