High Tower

Roger Persson

A game with lines and curves, that’s how Roger Persson defines his designs, and anyone who sees his furniture gets what he means. By adding soft surfaces and forms to an otherwise modern and aesthetic expression, he creates a long-lasting design idiom.

Roger's furniture is both beautiful and functional – comfortable, practical, and has a special knack of fitting into all types of environments. His Happy chair has become a iconic piece for HighTower.

Persson was born in 1967 in Sweden, and trained as an industrial designer at HDK/University of Gothenburg, he also studied furniture design at the School of Visual Arts in New York. He then opened a design studio with two colleagues. Since 2009 he has run his own studio, Roger Persson Design, designing furniture and other products – from furniture and lighting, to 3D-scanners to toys. His furniture has been exhibited all over Europe, in Japan and the USA.
