Hugo Richardson


I am a thinker, spending much of my time researching, pondering and contemplating the world in which we find ourselves. I am also a maker, constantly fiddling, pulling apart and assembling things, with a love and interest in all materials. My roots in engineering and passion for design are constantly colliding, leading me to take an interdisciplinary approach to the complex and nuanced challenges we face.
