About

Arjun Singh started out as a maker-designer in Kenya where he worked in his family’s 60 year old woodworking business. Situated in the coastal town of Mombasa, he spent four years working under his father’s guidance understanding the nature of working with different tropical hardwoods and designing numerous types of furniture pieces.

In 2015 Arjun set out to develop his trade by pursuing a Furniture and Product Design course at Nottingham Trent University where he spent time exploring the world of contemporary design. Towards his final year he created two pieces – ‘Weave’ (A conceptual woven lounge chair that questions the quantity of materials that go into a traditional seating form) and his other piece, ‘The Poorman’s Pony’ (A playful Terrazzo hallway bench that connects indoor and outdoor spaces).

Arjun presented his work at New Designers in 2019 where it was shortlisted by Joanne Jorgensen of Nike. His work was also presented at London’s Design Festival: 100 Percent Design, where he was awarded with product of the year for ‘Weave’.
