John Astbury

Designer Richard Astbury

Purposeful yet poetic; designer John Astbury is fascinated with archetypes and origins, using them to inform his furniture works.

British designer John Astbury began his academic studies in anthropology and sociology before moving to Stockholm to study product design at Konstfack, Sweden's largest arts university.

Astbury founded his own studio in 2014, where his process involves: "re-examining the fundamental elements of an archetype to explore what can be done differently and to bring purpose to the form, driving design in a new direction."

This designer's star is in the ascendancy, and he has collaborated with several Scandinavian design brands including Muuto and &Tradition.
