Office for Design was founded by American industrial designer Shane Schneck who develops products and concepts that range from chairs to mobile devices and art direction. The work of the studio is characterized by creating pragmatic products that are
'compositions of function'. The result is design that merges contemporary needs and new technologies with simplicity, ease of use and innovation. A background in architecture (BA, Miami Univ. Oxford OH) informs his multidisciplinary approach and led
him to Milan in 1999 to collaborate with Piero Lissoni. Clients and work include Alessi, Boffi, Cappellini, Flos, Fritz Hansen, Huawei Technologies, Ikea and HAY. The studio now based in Stockholm, has been presented at St. Etienne Design Biennale,
Salone Satellite *Wallpaper Best new group, Promosedia selection by Invitation, and was recently awarded the IF Gold Award for Innovation. The RU chair received the Guld Stolen (Golden Chair) Prize in 2011.
