Connor Holland is an independent designer maker who creates unique products and furniture in his contemporary studio workshop. His futuristic style takes inspiration from the optimistic, space age vision of the 21st century as seen in science fiction, combined with an ambitious creativity unbound by the rules of tradition and convention.
After graduating from Kingston University’s renowned Product Design course, he has continued to follow their ethos of ‘Thinking through Making’. As a result, the sculptural forms of his designs evolve through constant experimentation with materials, and by pushing the boundaries of manufacturing techniques.
Connor’s positive view of the future results in an increased awareness of ecological impact. With sustainability in mind, every design is hand made to last for generations, with a keen attention to detail to ensure the highest quality product. Many of his designs utilise the strength, durability and versatility of metal, ensuring that pieces can be easily refurbished in the decades to come, and finally recycled at the end of their usable life.
