Designer Profile: Carson & Crushell

Today we would like to introduce Carson & Crushell.

Douglas Carson and Rosaleen Crushell began their collaboration in 2003 following their graduation from University College Dublin, School of Architecture.

Based in London for six years, they worked for a number of award winning design practices. Since returning to Dublin their work has received some well deserved aclaim, including selection for Wallpaper’s 2010 design directory as one of the worlds best new talents, and as Apartments Therapy’s ten residential architects to watch in 2011.

Following on from a number of commissions from clients for one off pieces, they have added furniture design to their already impressive array of skills, debuting with the Snowdrop light.

“It is not enough that we build products that function, that are understandable and usable, we also need to build products that bring joy and excitement, pleasure and fun, and, yes, beauty to people’s lives.”
