“It’s about an authentic love for things, rather than designing for obsolescence.”
Ilse Crawford is a designer, teacher and creative director, known for her distinctively human-centred approach. From private homes to public spaces, furniture and product, Ilse’s work places human needs and desires at the fore, creating environments where people feel truly at ease and useful things that enhance human behaviour and actions.
Studioilse, founded by Ilse Crawford, is the multidisciplinary London-based studio through which these projects are realised. “I think design is often mistaken for an aesthetic,” Ilse says. “But the fact is, it can build new realities.”
