Sam is a product designer. Born in Bath (UK) in 1985, Sam has always had a passion for designing and making.

Having previously trained as an Industrial Design Engineer at Brunel University in West London, Sam worked for four years in a number of top UK based design consultancies before embarking on a two year masters at London's Royal College of Art. There he studied Design Products under Sebastian Wrong, Harry Richardson, Sir Kenneth Grange and Tomoko Azumi amongst others.

In 2012, he setup a small central London based workshop space and began cultivating his own ideas and design development process. Starting in 2013, he began working on a project called Wrong for Hay, a collaboration between his former tutor from RCA and Danish contemporary design brand Hay, developing lighting, furniture and accesories.

In 2015 Sam had the fantastic opportunity to move to Hong Kong, helping to setup a new sourcing office there, focusing on product development and the procurement of contemporary lighting products with manufacturers and suppliers in the south of China.

Over his years of design development and making practice, Sam has exhibited his own design work across Europe, including the V&A in London (UK), Salone del Mobile in Milan (Italy) and at Stockholm Design Week (Sweden).
