Stephen Sheffield


Before joining Buckinghamshire New University in 2018, I was an independent furniture designer and lecturer with Greater Brighton Metropolitan college.

I studied for my Master’s degree at the University of Creative Arts in Farnham, Surrey and my specialist areas of interest is in furniture design, sustainable materials and practices and prototyping and fabrication. My specialist knowledge has led me to work with clients involved in commercial Product Design, Museums & Heritage, Science & Technology and Film & TV.  My furniture work has been featured in Elle Decoration and World of Interiors. 

My surreal career highlight is presenting a series of bombs and detonators to Steven Spielberg in a lingerie shop in downtown Budapest.
