After working for some of Britain’s most celebrated designers, Lucy Kurrein set up her own studio in March 2013. With a commitment to delivering sophisticated, elegant, and timeless products, Lucy combines the rigour of industrial design with an understanding of the aesthetic and practical qualities required in furniture.
Lucy began her career on an Art Foundation Diploma at the Leeds College of Art and Design and went on to pursue a degree in Contemporary Furniture and Related Product Design at Buckinghamshire University. After graduating in 2007, Lucy moved to London to work with British Royal Designer for Industry, Matthew Hilton. While working with Hilton, Lucy helped develop products for furniture companies such as SCP, Case Furniture, De La Espada, and Ercol.
In 2009 Lucy went on to work for Tom Lloyd and Luke Pearson of design consultancy PearsonLloyd. There, Lucy expanded upon her furniture design experience, working in areas such as the public realm and the work place, along with retail, healthcare, and transport design.
In 2013, Lucy launched her first products with SCP, the Lincoln Sofa and Lily Occasional Tables. She has since released the Elmer, and most recently, the Tepee sofas. The Tepee sofa was part of the Sofa in Sight exhibition during the London Design Festival 2015. The exhibition celebrated SCP’s 30 year anniversary.
