Born in 1978 in London, Cocksedge studied industrial design at Sheffield Hallam University, where he received a Bachelor of Fine Arts in Industrial Design in 1997. He subsequently studied with Ron Arad at the Royal College of Art in London, receiving a Master of Arts in Product Design in 2002.
In 2004, he founded Paul Cocksedge Studio in London along with his partner Joana Pinho. With a strong and dedicated team of collaborators, the Studio has won national and international acclaim for its original and innovative design, underpinned by research into the limits of technology, materials and manufacturing processes.
The key feature of the Studio’s work, in everything from product design to architectural projects, is a focus on simplicity and imagination in order to create unique people-centred designs. At the core of this focus lies an unrelenting attention to detail, a willingness to question previous assumptions about design, and an eagerness to take on a wide-ranging array of projects.
