About /

Sam Weller is a British designer, born in Bath (UK) in 1985. With a background in Industrial Design and Engineering, Sam went on to study at the Royal College of Art in London, graduating in 2012 with a Master of Arts in Design Products.

He later joined a small London-based workshop space to begin cultivating his own ideas and developments. To date, he has lived, studied and worked around the world in the UK, US and Asia, and now resides in Copenhagen Denmark, where he is the head of lighting design and development for HAY. Sam’s design work aims to be timeless but memorable, focusing on a clean and honest aesthetic that reflects a products material selection and intended function.

Sam has exhibited his work across Europe, including the V&A in London (UK), Salone del Mobile in Milan (Italy) and at Stockholm Design Week (Sweden). He has also had the opportunity to tutor at The Royal Danish Academy of Fine Arts (KADK) in Copenhagen Denmark, National Taiwan University of Science and Technology (NTUST) in Taipei Taiwan and Brunel University in West London UK.
