Through the use of both a thoughtful consideration of form and a unique understanding of contemporary life, Kim Colin and Sam Hecht create beauty out of utility in the products, furniture and exhibitions they design. Hecht, from London, trained as an industrial designer, while Colin, from Los Angeles, as an architect; together they have helped their clients to produce items that display an understanding of both cultural relevance and spatial use. Their works are held in permanent collections including the Museum of Modern Art in New York; Centre Pompidou, Paris; and the Victoria and Albert Museum and the Design Museum, both in London.
