Following a similar path in his professional career to that of many Danish Modern icons Glyn was first educated in woodworking before entering the world of design and often quotes “the knowledge and experience of how to make furniture is an invaluable tool when designing furniture”.
After gaining experience working for manufacturers in the USA and Asia Glyn relocated to the design drive culture of Denmark, Scandinavia to establish his own studio which specializes in the design of furniture and other luxury products. A specialty of the studio is merging traditional artisan English craftsmanship, methods and techniques with the contemporary approach of form and function within Danish Modern design. The combination of this vast combined heritage of skills are evident in much of Glyn's work.
