KING & MIRANDA DESIGN
Perry King and Santiago Miranda founded King & Miranda Design in 1975. They are active in all areas of design, working for clients both in Italy and overseas. They are convinced that design is an important part of our culture and, as a result, they approach their work not only with pragmatism and respect for technology but also with respect for those values that are inherent in a vision of design as an integral part of a much wider cultural context. They believe that design must consider each object as a transmitter of structured and cultural signals that stimulate functional and emotional responses. Their designs have been published and awarded prizes in several countries, and there have been many personal and collective exhibitions of their work. Both Perry King and Santiago Miranda are active in research and teaching, and have participated in a plethora of conferences and sat on numerous competition juries. King is an RDI – Royal Designer for Industry – London and Miranda has been awarded the Premio Nacional de Diseño Español.
