Sebastian Cox

in London United Kingdom

Sebastian is the founder and co-director of the company. His training was in design, making and sustainability. Growing up in the Kent countryside he spent hours in the woods, developing a deep respect for them as a resource and near-sacred space. He laid the foundations of the business in 2010 with a collection which sought to ignite a much needed conversation about our woodlands and the unlocked potential they contain. Since then he has developed collections of furniture for retailers like Heal's; designed and produced in-house collections of furniture; created the award winning Sebastian Cox Kitchen with deVOL.
