Sam Hecht & Kim Colin

Hecht and Colin at their core embody two contrasting worldviews. He is a native Londoner, educated as an industrial designer, contemplative, and drawn to essential simplicity. She is a Californian, trained as an architect, effusive, and drawn to use the sensibilities of her discipline; emotion, scale, landscape, culture - to inform design.

Their studio, Industrial Facility, is located in central London’s Clerkenwell neighbourhood - itself a place of opposites, hip and professional, home to thinkers and entertainers. The studio is small in number, eclectic in talent.
