A Passion for Detail
CABworkshop was formed in early 2016 as a partnership between Alex Bowler and Stuart Bowman.
Both Alex and Stu are qualified Industrial Designers with a passion for furniture and cabinet design.
Stu has had 20 years experience in the industry. Prior to this he worked as an Industrial Designer in Sydney for 10 years returning to NZ in the late nineties to initially work with then take over the iconic Auckland furniture brand Apartmento. Apartmento remains one of NZ's leading residential furniture brands renowned for its contemporary aesthetic and high build quality. With his wife Melissa (who now runs the Apartmento showroom located in Ponsonby Auckland) Stuart also created, developed then sold the Meluka furniture brand to Danske Mobler in 2015.
Stu has a passion for furniture and furniture design history and is committed to producing the highest quality work.
Alex has a wealth of experience in kitchen cabinet making and in particular with CNC production techniques now so vital to this industry. As an Industrial Designer Alex has previously been involved in amphibious vehicle design, motorcycle and car design and is acknowledged as an expert in 3D CNC surfacing and machining.
To complement Alex's many years experience in kitchen manufacturing and in depth knowledge of CNC manufacturing he is also a passionate furniture and cabinet maker who is motivated by the absolute precision offered by CNC manufacture.
