About 

Introducing Simon Furniture Design and a new range of wonderful pieces of furniture individually created by Simon Lowe.

 

Simon has spent a fascinating life across the world developing exceptional wood and metal working skills. He learnt first through designing and  rebuilding his river boat and then worked as a shipwright on some of the world's most famous yachts. He developed his talent for designing  and creating beautiful things by funding himself through the Master of Fine Arts Furniture Design program at the Rhode Island School of Design. Simon Furniture Design has for sale a range of one off furniture design classics in wood and metal, and is ready to take on commissions.

Employment 

Simon Furniture Design, Providence, RI, US, Founder

Simon Furniture Design is an emerging endeavour dedicated to designing and making unique and beautiful furniture, and to discovering its expressive possibilities.

Simon Furniture Design is the space in my life where I bring together the roles of tradesman, artist, designer and architect to create furniture. I make chairs and tables which are seemingly still, fixed in space, however, as we move around them, they become dynamic. Each is a small gesture that celebrates everything beyond itself. Each is a footstep, a tangible trace of our continuing movement.
