Product Design

My work as a Product Designer has ranged from fashion and toys to electronics and furniture. I am known for exploring the boundaries of geometry in my designs and drawing on nature and organic structures to create practical objects with a refined, everyday style.

Some of my key collaborations include working with Japanese designer Issey Miyake, incorporating a foldable origami aesthetic into their Bao Bao range of handbags. Designing trophies, awards and robots capable of drawing portraits for advertising agency WPP. As well as constructing a bold, new style of collection box for the Red Cross.

My award-winning work has found its way to galleries and exhibitions across Europe, the USA, Mexico and Japan, as well as being auctioned by Pierre Berge & Associates.
