Ryan Long

In his thesis work, Long wanted to create interesting furniture designs that were inspired by nature. Long believes that observation is its own craft, and can breed inspiration which leads to experimentation. Inspired by blue whales, Long created a piece entitled Swimming Table that looks nothing like a whale swimming, but captures the essence of how a whale is both graceful and strong.
