industrial design (lecture)
Born in 1969, British industrial designer Sam Hecht studied at the Royal College of Art and, after working briefly for the architect David Chipperfield, travelled in the US and Japan before returning to London as head of design at IDEO. In 2002 he established the design studio Industrial Facility with his partner Kim Colin. Both designers are convinced of “the importance of design as a means of simplifying our lives in an inspirational way”. Amongst their clients you find Muji, Yamaha, LaCie, Epson, Magis, Whirlpool and many more. Project areas include furniture, electronics, consumer products, cultural institutions, transportation and fashion.
