Pearson Lloyd

Pearson Lloyd is a product, furniture and innovation design studio led by founders Luke Pearson and Tom Lloyd, and run from a studio in Shoreditch, East London. For the last twenty years, the agency has designed products, systems and environments for the home, workplace, transport and healthcare sectors. Its close relationship with clients including consumer brands, manufacturers and retailers has given the agency unparalleled experience in understanding the needs of users and the demands of business.

The agency’s work is driven by a need to understand and interpret a world that is experiencing rapid and often unexpected change. Its in depth research into these changes - in both the material and digital world - enables PearsonLloyd to create design solutions that are appropriate and relevant for manufacturers, brands and users. The studio is highly collaborative in its approach. It embraces the restrictions imposed by product type, function, material and process and delivers products that are beautiful, efficient and useful.

Luke and Tom were awarded the distinction of Royal Designers for Industry by The Royal Society of Arts in 2008 and in 2012 were named in the top 50 designers ‘Shaping the Future’ by Fast-Co Magazine in New York. They have lectured for a number of years at ECAL and the RCA and regularly talk at international platforms.

Projects include the design of the Economy Class Cabin of Lufthansa’s new A350 fleet, a new global guest room for Intercontinental Hotel Group, ‘A Better A&E’ project for the Department of Health, Totem Intelligent Waste programme for Joseph Joseph, Flow X stairlift for ThyssenKrupp & furniture projects for brands including Teknion, Bene, Steelcase, Walter Knoll, Alias, Senator, Allermuir and PoltonaFrau. 

More recently, Pearson Lloyd have been announced as a collaborator in a new business class experience for Lufthansa. The business class seat and cabin design has recently contributed to Lufthansa’s certification of a 5-star Skytrax Airline Rating, for the quality of its Onboard product and staff service. Pearson Lloyd are also key members of Virgin Voyages ‘Creative Collective’, a small selection of design firms envisioning Virgin’s first cruise ship. Pearson Lloyd’s role re-imagines the cabin spaces, delivering the first ever, patented transformational bed at sea.
