Founded in 2013 by husband and wife Alexander and Sharon Harris, the team creates inspiring and innovative interior and product designs for clients across the residential, hospitality and commercial sectors.
Services include interior design, architecture, bespoke product design, procurement, lighting design, art direction and styling, alongside a growing product collection.
Each product the studio produces and spaces they transform is inspired by its context, client and use. Harris & Harris are focussed on surprising, delighting and improving the lives of those interacting with their projects; whilst respecting the social, ethical and environmental responsibilities of every design.
Creative Director Alexander Harris has over 10 years experience designing products, bespoke furniture, lighting and specialist joinery.
He has worked for some of the biggest names in design; Terence Conran's furniture company Benchmark, David Collins, Kelly Hoppen and Yoo, co-founded by Philippe Starck.
Alexander has been involved in high-profile projects during this time including Mandarin Oriental Hotel in Doha, The Delaunay in London, Aqua Bar in Hong Kong, The Groucho Club in London and several luxury residential developments.
Co-founder Sharon Harris brings over 10 years of industry experience to Harris & Harris.
Sharon has a truly international perspective having worked as an interior designer in Singapore, Melbourne and London and is fluent in both English and Mandarin.
Sharon has worked for award winning architecture and interior practices including DesignInc, Bisset Adams and Perkins + Will. During this time she has predominately designed commercial projects for blue-chip clients including China Construction Bank, Citigroup, Mazda and Goldman Sachs as well as the Dubai property developer Emaar.
Harris & Harris design furniture and products for the most luxurious restaurants, bars and hotels around the world.
The studio feel it is important to help balance this, which is why they set up the Designed For Life Foundation.
Every product sold from the Harris & Harris collection contributes to the Designed for Life Foundation which supports charities concerned with providing those without the basic needs of food, water and shelter.
Made in Great Britain
The Harris & Harris Collection is proudly handmade across Great Britain and bespoke products are also made in the UK wherever possible.
The studio is passionate about supporting and utilising the skills and craftsmanship that the British Isles has to offer. A carefully curated network of artisans, workshops and factories manufacture the projects that Harris & Harris design.
Harris & Harris try to minimise the impact on the environment wherever possible. Products are designed for durability and the studio endeavours to source all materials and components in Great Britain to reduce the miles travelled to manufacture.
Natural, renewable and sustainably sourced materials and those with low embodied energy such as wood, leather and stone are used at every possible opportunity. The use of plastics and oil based products are avoided.
