Since 2008, Simon Hasan has been recognized for challenging conventional thinking toward material and process. The recipient of two Wallpaper* Design Awards, Simon is in the V&A Museum publication, 21 Designers for 21st Century Britain. His work is in the permanent collection of the Gewerbe Museum (Switzerland), the UK Crafts Council and the Fondazione Fendi (Italy). Inspired by the collision of industrial processes and ancient crafts during the Industrial Revolution, Simon Hasan embraces tradition and technology to create innovative objects with a rich historical context and timeless appeal. The Wrap series uses the finest vegetable tanned saddle leathers to give depth of color, character and a material that will age beautifully. For the Wrap series of objects, leather is hand molded in an ancient process that uses the careful application of moisture and heat, before being finished with solid brass fittings.
