Stephan Copeland is an industrial designer known for crafting mobility.“ I’m looking for new products that free up peoples physical aspirations and enable intuitive expression. Constructions that gel with people and celebrate agility” Born in 1960 in Montreal, Copeland’s kinetic approach to design began as a child making toys and bicycles. Today his professional work is defined by interactive quality the way toys are defined by the play they inspire. With a client list of elite manufacturers in the US and Europe, Copeland has won several of the industry’s top awards and been wildly published and exhibited for design innovation. Best known for a ground breaking collection of lighting with Flos, Knoll, Steelcase and Luxo, Copeland has also pioneered new levels of performance for computer ergonomics and disabled cycling. Inspired by exploration and adventure, he has traveled extensively in an international career that has included studios in Montreal , Los Angeles, Milan, New York and a six year tour as a professional seaman. An avid motorcyclist and athlete , Copeland sights open water swimming to best represent his personal mobility as design vision .“ I do believe people aspire to move fluidly through the physical landscape, I’m here to make products go with that flow”
