Mac Collins is a young designer making a big name for himself through his functional furniture and objects that are rooted in the art of storytelling.

You could say that Mac Collins is a storyteller as much as he is a designer. Though he started at England’s Northumbria University with an idea about studying sculpture, he soon developed an interest in creating functional objects that could become part of the narratives of peoples’ lives. “Making chairs is almost the perfect embodiment of that for me,” says Collins, now a designer in residence at his alma mater.
