Harry Allen

Visiting Assistant Professor


Harry Allen established his award-winning, multi-disciplinary design firm, Harry Allen Design, in 1993. Although trained as an industrial designer, Harry achieved prominence in 1994 for his interior design of Moss. A multitude of interior design projects followed. Harry’s product design work spans a wide range, from furniture and lighting to packaging and accessories. His “Reality’ line of products for Areaware, including the “Bank in the form of a Pig,’ has taken on a life of its own. Recent projects include the Apex water bottle for Built, Arc, an inflatable structure for InflateUK, and his “Applied Portraiture’ Project launched at Design Miami in 2019. The Harry Allen Design process is a unique combination of experimentation, cross-pollination between industries, manufacturing expertise and marketplace savvy.
