Simon Skinner Sweden

Simon Skinner is a Swedish designer who approaches his work through the lens of social constructions and performed rituals, often ending up challenging preconceived shapes and forms.

Simon launched his Stockholm-based studio in 2020 focusing on object and furniture design. In his latest project titled Syntax, Simon explores beauty rituals as an act of power and liberation through elevating historically charged objects connected to hair and beauty, and the result is a series of limited edition handcrafted afro combs. We spoke to Simon about the story that led him to reimagine the iconic object, and he delved deep into the inspiration and process behind some of his most unique creations.
