About Miles J Rice : Rice & Rice Fine Furniture was founded by Miles Jason Rice with the vision to create timeless yet unexpected pieces of design furniture, created with honesty and appreciation for the material, the crafts and the design. Following in the footsteps of the artisan-craftsmen of the British isles, Miles is a self-taught furniture designer, whose mantra is: "You cannot teach passion." This allows Miles to take inspiration from traditional designs and manufacturing processes, whilst allowing him to push far beyond these to create his very own visual language. The first major series of works designed by Miles was a collection of coffee and dining tables design that is pushing the boundaries not only of craftsmanship but also of table design. This collection clearly shows the key sources of inspiration for Miles. He draws inspiration from the beauty and specific properties of the materials. Equally important as a source of inspiration is modern architecture and art, especially installations and sculptures that play with the characteristics of the materials. Thirdly, Miles is a strong admirer of craftsmanship, working with selected masters of their crafts to develop and produce his designs. These very different sources of inspiration create a fusion of craftsmanship, the beauty of the material and creativity. ​The unique design of the Sculptura dining table was recognized at the 2019 Best Of Year awards of the Interior Design magazine, one of the most prestigious awards in interior and furniture design, as an Honoree. Working with some of the best craftspeople in Europe, Rice & Rice Fine Furniture is pushing furniture design and manufacturing beyond what is common for their profession when working in wood, glass, brass, marble and other materials. ​
STATEMENT OF ART:
Design for me is the challenge to create objects of beauty which are functional, to touch people's lives and create emotions. I see it as my responsibility to create objects that are timeless, that honour and accentuate the natural materials they are made from and that do not need replacing any time soon.

ORGANIZATION:
Rice & Rice Fine Furniture

EDUCATION:
As with some of the best furniture designers in the world, such as Joseph Walsh, Sam Maloof and James Krenow, I came in at a different angle as I never studied design. Like the aforementioned, I found my unique visual language by building until I discovered designs that were uniquely different from other furniture out there whilst having a common theme between them.

EXPERIENCE:
I always worked with my hands, learning multiple skills and trades.

AWARDS:
The unique design of the Sculptura dining table was recognized at the 2019 Best Of Year awards of the Interior Design magazine, one of the most prestigious awards in interior and furniture design, as an Honoree.

LANGUAGE SKILLS:
English
German (intermediate)

HOBBIES:
I am a nature fanatic, this is where I love to spend my time.
