Scott Henderson is among the top Industrial Designers working in America today. Scott’s product designs for his global fortune 500 client base have become best selling industry disruptors, and his own collection of useful and unique objects are sold throughout the world to retailers and museums including the MoMA Design Store and the National Gallery.
Scott believes design should achieve “clever-freshness”. “Clever” is ingenuity combined with a sense of wit. “Freshness”, in turn, evokes feelings of health and happiness – lightness as opposed to burden – a feeling of rebirth and an inspiration to move forward.
Aside from his world-renown and award-winning work in industrial design, Scott is an experienced inventor as evidenced by his portfolio of over 50 patents in the U.S. and Europe for novel innovations in fields as diverse as housewares and home accessories to consumer medical products and electronics.
Scott’s work is included in the permanent collection of the Brooklyn Museum, the Cooper Hewitt Smithsonian National Design Museum and the Alessi Museum. Scott is a sought after presenter on the topic of design, both nationally and internationally.
Over 90% of Scott’s projects have been mass-produced, a track record few designers can claim. More to the point, products Scott has designed have generated hundreds of millions of dollars in revenues for his clients and have become industry best sellers.
For Scott, design is not a discussion of form versus function; it’s about thinking and the quality of the big idea.
