George Simons and the office for DESIGN combines materiality, artisanal craft, and contemporary manufacturing processes to create products and spaces that inspirit users to have lasting emotional connections to the built environment they inhabit and the products they own.
"Design is a human-centered, objective, and responsive profession. It answers to user needs and market desires informed by narratives and stories. It balances logic, emotion, beauty, and affordability. It is a search for the essential.
I don't feel there is ambiguity or a complexity of meaning behind my work. There is simply questioning, clarifying, exploring, and prototyping until the concept is formed.
Joyous. Timeless. Relevant. Reductivist."
