With a degree in Product Design from Kingston University, UK-based Connor Holland has adopted that school’s “Thinking Through Making” ethos. This led Holland to conduct backyard experiments in DIY hydroforming, with the goal of “discovering interesting new forms for inflated steel product and furniture designs.”
