A postgraduate of the Royal College of Art where she had studied furniture design, Nazanin Kamali (1966) established Non Specific Creativity in the early 1990s; a multi-disciplined design collective that worked on a diverse variety of design projects ranging from restaurant design to art installations.
She later joined retail design company Aero as the creative director before setting up Newman + Kamali with Paul Newman in 2000 (which subsequently became iNK), designing and supplying retailers such as the Conran Shop, Heals, Crate & Barrel, SCP and John Lewis.
Nazanin Kamali's work included new product development and design, the refurbishment of Aero’s London stores and the exhibition design for the international design exhibitions Cologne, Frankfurt, New York and 100% Design London.
Whilst at Aero she also managed the entire merchandising operation of the business from the sourcing and buying-in of product right through to in store display and packaging. In 2000 she began a new venture, setting up Newman + Kamali in collaboration with Paul Newman and subsequently INK (Interior Newman and Kamali).
Since Nazanin Kamali began working with Case in 2005, she has produced a beautifully simplistic range of products including Omid and Loop. As a founding designer for Case Furniture her contemporary designs reflected the attention to precision detail found in Japanese arts, while her bespoke craft commissions are characterised by high levels of craftsmanship and intricate forms.
