After migrating from England at a young age, Ivan grew up in Perth where he studied interior architecture. An award-winning designer of interiors and products for over 35 years, Ivan’s portfolio spans Australia, the United Kingdom, America, Germany and Italy. His design collections all display a clear and considered aesthetic through a careful balance of form, materiality and expressed detail.
Growing up near the water, Ivan finds the grace and fluidity of the ocean complements his strong architectural sensibility. Ivan’s careful use of a restrained geometry and fine detailing is used to enrich his product’s emotional qualities. The combination of individual and robust personalities allows his products to inhabit a diverse range of scenarios.
Ivan’s design ethos is guided by curiosity and a sense of humour, which he sees as an essential part of the design process.
