Based in Berlin, designer Jerszy Seymour (1968-) grew up in London where he studied engineering at South Bank Polytechnic and industrial design at the Royal College of Art.

While living in Milan, Seymour embarked upon his experimental work, balancing the line between art and design.

He has also designed for companies including Vitra, Magis and Moulinex, and his work has been exhibited in the Design Museum in London and Museum of Modern Art in New York.
