British-born Chris Martin is the co-founder of and designer for furniture company Massproductions, established with his Swedish colleague Magnus Elebäck in 2009.
Martin trained in the UK and worked as an assistant in Jasper Morrisons London studio before moving to Stockholm. Here he worked as a freelance designer for IKEA before founding Massproductions with Elebäck.
Of his design approach, Martin says: "Our knowledge and passion is in mass production, hence the name. Our goal is to use industrial processes to create furniture which people can get excited about, something that gives them pride of ownership. You can do that with a hand-crafted piece, but for us, the satisfaction comes from achieving it with an industrially produced article."
