Hugh Miller

Hugh Miller is a designer and maker specialising in studio furniture in wood. Hugh trained as an architect before founding his studio, and sees his work as small pieces of architecture, where the concept is embedded in the articulation of the details.

Hugh is heavily influenced by his time researching craftsmanship in Japan as a Winston Churchill Memorial Fellow. This transformative experience led him to develop a set of design principles, inspired by Japanese making philosophy, that now underpin his studio.

As well as creating his furniture collection, Hugh also designs for established brands including collaborations with Benchmark Furniture, Savoir Beds, and The IceHotel Sweden.
In April 2018, Hugh won a commission from the National Trust to create a piece to be added to the permanent collection at William Morris's Red House, London. The piece will be handmade in Hugh's studio in Liverpool, before being transported to London in September 2018, where it will be (briefly) set on fire in a public 'Burn Ceremony' in the garden at Red House.
