Carra Santos, FRSA

Nelson Santos

Design Director
Nelson is an accomplished multidisciplinary 3D designer, combining spatial and interior design with furniture and product.

An experienced designer-maker for over fifteen years, he strikes a powerful balance of conceptual and practical to develop products and spaces with innovation, feasibility and longevity at the core.

His design skills are enhanced by a hands-on knowledge of construction and fabrication, from carpentry, joinery, tiling, installation and decoration, to bespoke CNC, metalwork and assembly. Consequently his designs are feasible and planned to a budget, and easily communicated and interpreted by all parties.

As required, Nelson calls on his network of trusted makers and manufacturers, all of whom reflect Nelson’s superlative attention to quality and detail.
