Mike Ayres Design

We specialise in designing and providing Multi-sensory rooms, studios and equipment for people with special and additional needs.
We also design and build Soft play rooms, safe areas and Sensory integration spaces.

We are adept at developing concepts and carrying them through to the completed environments and products. As well as this we sometimes adapt existing equipment to make them wholly appropriate for our clients’ needs.

There is also a selected range of products from other companies to compliment our own equipment.

Although we are a relatively small company we aim to be the best in our field and to always be at the forefront of inspirational and technical developments.

We make no compromises in design or manufacture. We have our own extensive production workshops encompassing a wide variety of technologies, which gives us complete control of all aspects of quality and function.

When you contact us, you will not be pressed into buying our products.

We will listen to your needs, give the best advice we can and let you make the decision.

The designer

Mike Ayres is a professional designer with over 30 years experience of creating equipment and environments for people with special and additional needs.

He has been involved in a number of pioneering research projects, working with many statutory and voluntary organisations and was instrumental in introducing the Dutch concept of ‘Snoezelen’ into Britain in the 1980s. Since then he has focused much of his work on developing multi-sensory concepts, environments and products for care and education. This includes the origination of ‘Sensory Studio®’, radio remote switch control systems, mobile sensory resources and curriculum based facilities within schools and colleges.

Mike continues to work on new concepts for whole buildings, individual environments and products, working with a wide range of professionals in the education and caring industries.

He aims to design and produce the very best equipment and environments for people with special and additional needs and to enable everyone to function within inclusive environments.
