André Klauser and Ed Carpenter first met whilst studying on the Design Products course at the Royal College of Art in 2000.

Both found success and launched their own practices immediately after graduating, with Carpenter’s 2001 Pigeon Light becoming an unexpected icon and enduring bestseller in design and museum shops around the world. After a series of successful collaborations, they formed Klauser & Carpenter, working with Established & Sons and other pioneering manufacturers internationally. They are both directors of design at production company Very Good & Proper, with the motto ‘measure twice, cut once’. Klauser has also been a tutor on the influential Design Products course at the Royal College of Art
