Born in Berlin in 1968, Jerszy Seymour grew up in London, where he graduated in Engineering design from South Bank Polytechnic in 1989, and in Industrial Design from the Royal College of Art in 1994. Afterwards he travelled and lived around the world collaborating on various projects , during which he fermented and formulated ideas that would characterize his design approach.

In 1999 he opened his workshop in Milan, where he started his own experimental productions including ’House in a Box’ in 2002, ’Scum’ in 2003 and ’Tape’ in 2003. In parallel he has also consulted and designed for companies such as Swatch, Evian, Perrier, L’Oreal, Magis, IDEE, Sputnik, and Smeg.
His work has been exhibited in the Design Museum in London, the Vitra Design Museum in Basel and Berlin, the Palais De Tokyo in Paris and the Gallery Kreo in Paris. His work is held in the permanent collection of the ’Fondation National de Art Contemporain’ France, and the Musée d’art Moderne Grand-Duc Jean Luxembourg.
He has a given lectures at the Domus Academy in Milan, the Royal College of Art in London, and the Vitra Design Workshops in France.

In 2000 he was awarded the Dedalus Award for European Designer of the Year,
and in 2003 the Taro Okamoto Memorial Award for Contemporary Art.
