RicardoSimparo, otherwise known as Richard Simpson is a multi-disciplinary designer living and working in Christchurch, New Zealand.
His background is the commercial office workspace with a deep understanding human bio-mechanics and how movement can impact on physical and mental health. Since moving to New Zealand, the design focus has shifted to sustainable design and the use of natural materials.
Inspiration is taken from the beautiful and natural environment of the South Island and the materials native to the landscape. Using these elements, he seeks to create 'functional art' that represent more than a commodity product. He designs with a driving statement - 'to design something is relatively easy; to design something simple is where the challenge lies'.
His goal is to create spatial objects that stand the test of time and provide intrinsic value to their owners.
