Dean Norton develops products that consider form, function, refined detailing and harmony in materials. Drawing inspiration from a number of contemporary Influences, he strives to create enduring pieces that connect on an emotional level, merging a balance between art and design whilst maintaining a minimalist design aesthetic.
Born and raised in Essex, England, Dean originally studied graphic design before continuing his journey as an interior designer, graduating in 2008 with a bachelor of arts degree (Hons) in Retail Interior Design from The University of Arts London.
As a part of working on small and large scale interior design briefs across the UK, Europe and Australia, he often designed custom pieces specifically for his clients which eventually inspired him to develop his skills further in furniture and object design.
Now based in Melbourne, Dean launched his own design practice in 2017 with an ethos to create authentic locally made pieces.
