"My design is somewhere in-between Scottish and Scandinavian"

Born in Inverness, Scotland, Nick Ross studied industrial design at Gray’s School of Arts in Aberdeen and was awarded the Arts & Heritage award upon graduation in 2008. Now based in Sweden, Ross completed a Master’s Degree in Interior Architecture and Furniture Design at Konstfack, Stockholm and began establishing a name for himself, opening his eponymous studio in 2014.

Ross is often inspired to design with a focus on ancient history, where he finds the factors with which to interpret the relationship between the user and contemporary design. Using storytelling as a pretext and applying a confidently critical approach, Ross studies happenings that have determined specific cultural balances. Every project comes from the desire to create ideal or real bridges between the present to that of the past. Shared Ross, “My work looks at the role of history and storytelling in how we perceive the world around us, by working with themes such as place, origin, and the role fiction plays in past and present societies.”

Our award-winning Proto collection, designed by Nick Ross, beautifully reveals this sensitivity to materials that makes bold moves appear delicate.
