A British designer with studios in both New York City and London, Aaron Probyn creates minimal but tactile products that are both functional and emotionally engaging, bringing joy to the every day. From furniture and lighting to table and kitchenware, his design signature embraces clean-lined forms, considered proportions and a rich materiality. Passionate about sustainability and combatting disposable culture, Aaron sidesteps trends in order to create quality-led pieces that can be used and enjoyed over a lifetime.
A Product and Furniture Design graduate of London’s Kingston University, Aaron first established a presence within the design industry by creating award-winning products while working for a roster of respected brands, including Habitat, Studio Conran, Tom Dixon, Plain English and Jedco Product Design.
In 2012, Aaron founded his eponymous design studio and now consults on projects for global companies including ABC Carpet & Home, Waterfords, Another Country, Crate & Barrell, Ikea, Normann Copenhagen and West Elm. From directing the initial concept to final production sign-off, he creates ranges that are commercially successful year after year. Experienced across a variety of products and manufacturing processes, from small-batch runs to high-volume automated production, Aaron brings an in-depth knowledge and instinctive approach to each and every brief.
In 2020, Aaron further expanded the remit of his practice by launching a line of own-brand products, selling though retailers and an e-commerce site. By collaborating with carefully selected manufacturers and sourcing ethically produced materials, he’s committed to making good design accessible to the many, not just the few.
