Resident works with a select group of talent across multiple disciplines including industrial design, architecture, furniture design and sculpture. Each designer’s instinct for experimentation keeps the group fluid and adaptive to new technologies, while also cementing our reputation for innovation.
Simon is the Creative Director of Resident and designs original furniture for both residential and commercial spaces under the Simon James Design name.
Simon infuses character into clean, uncomplicated forms. Having founded his eponymous brand in 2001, Simon’s appreciation of craftsmanship continues to deepen, as he explores material tactility in new and exciting ways. His design approach is largely intuitive, with people and their experiences of a space a central focus for him.
