Tim Miller is a furniture and lighting designer living in Brooklyn, NY. He received his MFA in Furniture Design from the Rhode Island School of Design in 2019. Prior to attending RISD he earned his BA in Sculpture from Taylor University then spent several years starting and growing his design studio. His work has been shown internationally at shows such as Salone del Mobile and ICFF and he has been commissioned by a range of global companies/institutions including Lexus and Harvard. He currently works as Lead Designer for USM Modular Furniture which is a renowned Swiss furniture company focused on sustainability and precision manufacturing. Additionally, he continues to create work through his own studio and partners with other companies to design/develop new products and furniture lines.
His design practice centers around geometry and symmetry as a tool for creating harmony and wholeness, often rooted in mathematical systems to connect the work back to nature. Much of Tim’s work invites the viewer to discover the unknown through interaction and strikes a balance of being simple without being static. His design ethos is the distilled result of developing a particular visual language formed out of years of deep involvement with pattern, symmetry, rhythm and balance.
