Lionel graduated from the Royal College of Art, London, in 1987. He worked as an automotive designer for Pininfarina in Italy before launching his own consultancy business with a full-size concept car in 1989 Tokyo Auto Salon.
Lionel’s work spread into interior products, in particular lighting. His products are very much design led: through his work he seeks to explore the boundaries between Art and Design.
In 2002 Lionel was appointed Designer in Residence at Huddersfield University, where he began working on FutureFactories, a digital manufacturing concept for the mass individualisation of products.
“The potential to translate the virtual direct into real-world products still seems magical to me. Digital manufacturing is turning the mass production paradigm on its head and opening up more possibilities than we can yet imagine. Designs are no-longer constrained by process: terms such as concept and prototype become redundant.”
