Samuel Connolly from Bucks New University - Do Masters

Samuel has recently graduated from the National School of Furniture at Bucks New University, where he studied Furniture Design. As part of his graduation project, Samuel has created a range of furniture that is designed to lift and cheer the spirits through usage of colour, inspired by the Scandinavian tradition of painting furniture to remedy depression brought on by the long, dark winter months. The Lucis range comprises a chair, a multi-functional storage unit and an occasional table made with laminated plywood, combining simple forms with a carefully researched colour palette for maximum impact.
