Award-winning graduate designer of innovative products and furniture

  • Hugh Leader-Williams

Furniture designer Hugh Leader-Williams (3D Design, 2012) is building an enviable reputation for design. Since graduating, he has received a number of awards and accolades – The 100% Design Award, The Made.com Award, and The BCFA Lugo Award.

Hugh’s beautifully simple products reflect his passion for high-quality, traditional materials and keen interest in manufacturing processes and techniques.
