Group Design was formed in North London in 2008, by two designers who wanted to combine their commercial, bespoke and architectural design experience to create progressive lighting, furniture and home accessories. Working on projects individually and as a partnership, we firmly believe that collaboration adds a richness and depth to the design process.
Our design work is a response to technological, cultural and emotional needs, and ranges from bespoke/low volume items to products suitable for mass manufacture. They are objects that fulfil their chosen role with elegance and ease, without unnecessary visual and structural clutter. We strive to create products that express a warmth and emotion whilst making efficient use of form, material and manufacturing process.
