Kirsty Whyte grew up in England where she graduated from Nottingham Trent University with a degree in Decorative Arts. When she finished her studies, she was invited as an International guest student to Kalmar University in Sweden. After that, she moved back to England where she worked for several years before opening her own design studio in 2009. Having just returned to England from China after working directly with factories for a year, she now works as a freelance designer designing both furniture and home accessories.
Kirsty Whyte explains: “My ambition is to design classics of the future that customers want to invest in and keep. I think the material a product is made of is central to a designs success, and I always look for ways to take optimal advantage of a materials potential when I design products.”
