Our Story

Handcrafted and hand finished brass taps, showers and bathroom fittings. Made in England.

Studio Ore was born out of founder Daniel Lee’s vision for his own home. Undertaking a renovation project in 2014, he envisaged beautiful brass taps that would showcase the natural properties of the metal and develop a unique character over time. Following many years of chrome and the ‘sterilised’ bathroom look, he felt it was time to bring the warmer tones of brass back into the bathroom.

Daniel looked everywhere; he found many artificially aged products, but nothing resembling what he had in mind. And so he decided to return to his roots in engineering and set about designing the taps himself.

Once they were in place, it became clear that Daniel wasn’t the only person who believed that bathroom fittings were ripe for reinvention. Enquiries poured in, demand grew, and Studio Ore was established in response.

Today, from a workshop in Sussex, Studio Ore designs and makes a widening range of products, placing the utmost importance upon unrivalled craftsmanship and premium-quality materials. Our products are heavily influenced by industrial design and are as much about function as they are about aesthetics. Engineered with precision to the highest possible quality standards and finished by hand they embody the beauty of the understated, bringing a discreet style to any interior space.

What began as a vision of a tap has now evolved to include showers and other bathroom fittings. As well as the original hand-polished brass, our products are also available in multiple finishes that can be found here.
