Established & Sons are delighted to announce the appointment of Sebastian Wrong as Design Director. One of the founding members of the innovative British furniture design company in 2005, Wrong returns to lead a creative agenda for Established & Sons that will honour the original philosophy of the brand, while taking its culture of design collaborations to ambitious new levels.
“Established & Sons works with designers in a way that is unique in the world. It’s a distinct process, I’m passionate about it, and I am honoured to be leading it again. We’ve always looked for ways to champion an emerging generation of design talent, as well as collaborating with established practitioners at the forefront of the industry,” says Sebastian Wrong. “My ambition is to see the founding principles of artistry, freedom, ingenuity and a pursuit of the extraordinary flourish through future collections. I want our new designs to astonish – watch this space.”
From 2005 to 2012, Wrong oversaw many of the iconic designs that have defined the Established & Sons approach. His role was instrumental in shaping the identity of the brand, and his own designs, which include Wrongwoods furniture, the Heidi stool, Font Clock and Convex Mirror, have remained bestsellers.
