Alexander Taylor is one the UK’s leading design innovators. After establishing his studio in 2002, the young designer was quickly catapulted onto the international stage with the launch of the Antlers coat hook, which won multiple awards.

This was followed by the Fold light – a small lamp created from a single sheet of folded metal – for Established & Sons’ debut line in 2005, which has since been acquired by museums including the MoMA, New York and the Art Institute of Chicago. His natural curiosity for new manufacturing techniques attracted sports brand Adidas, a collaboration which led to the invention of Primeknit, the brand’s first knitted single-piece upper. Taylor continues to work as a creative consultant for Adidas and has also produced private commissions for David Gill Gallery and the late Alexander McQueen.
