Toby Nowland is an award-winning product designer with a strong passion for furniture and homeware design. His career in product design stems from an interest in art and design, objects and structures, and the curiosity in how they function. 

After graduating with a Masters of industrial design at the University of South Australia in 2012, he has spent the past 5 years in Melbourne working for different design companies. 

Since beginning his career in 2013, Toby designed multiple furniture ranges for restaurants, cafe’s and bars in cities across Australia. The homeware products he designed at Country Road are sold in over 100 stores in Australia, New Zealand and South Africa.

"I have a curiosity for materials and manufacturing processes. I love experimenting. I think it is important to play with materials to discover what is possible, and what isn’t."
