‘I believe that no detail should exist without reason, so I take a reductive approach to materials, form and function. I try to solve problems in the simplest possible way, removing anything that is unnecessary, and distilling the result into a clean, honest, and understated aesthetic, with the ultimate aim to create useful and timeless products’
After leaving school, Daniel Schofield studied art and graphic design at Warwickshire college, before embarking on a carpentry apprenticeship building houses and offices, and restoring historic buildings. This combination of arts-based education and hands-on craft experience evolved into a passion for design, culminating in a degree in furniture and product design at Sheffield Hallam University. The fusion of graphics, construction and design informs Daniel’s visual language and creative direction to this day, marking him out as one of the UK’s most promising designers.
With a diverse creative output, Daniel is currently working with some of the world’s leading brands and manufacturers, including – Conran, Decode, Woud, Skandium and Benchmark so far.
