About Cameron Smith : Cameron Smith has a passion for design and approaches everything he does as a design challenge. With design training from Stanford University’s renowned design program, he’s built a successful design career founding and running a product development consulting firm. With 30 years of design experience, he has been honored with international awards for furniture, lighting and product designs. His background in mechanical engineering and industrial design helped shape his design philosophy which centers around exploring design and the interaction between people and the products they use in both technical and emotional ways.

He approaches his business career in much the same way he does design and is always looking for new and innovative ways to challenge himself to build something new. As an entrepreneur he built and started a Polo club that produces a local, annual lifestyle magazine and hosts a summer polo party sponsored by Rolls-Roycethat has grown to over 1,000 guests. Cameron has also ventured into real estate with a desire to renovate historic buildings and bring them back to vibrant parts of the community. Although his business ventures are varied, Cameron maintains his core love of design through all his ventures..


Cameron has a long history and love for furniture design. Through design school he gravitated toward furniture and more environmental designs over electronics. His master’s thesis at Stanford University centered around cordless environments and manifested itself in a unique sculptural desk which he continues to use to this day. By starting Furniture Smith, Cameron created an avenue to re-engage in the design process and create truly novel designs that spawn from inspiration and raise the standards and consumer expectations for everyday products. His drive to explore form and function by merging art and engineering to create unique pieces is rare in a business environment measured by economic success. With his keen eye for detail, he emulates the human body as an innovative machine and as an art form. Each piece is beautifully crafted and thought out with parts that are as functional as they are elegant.
STATEMENT OF ART:
Most products we use are driven by economics with success measured through business metrics. Very few products are designed from inspiration and fewer yet are created to inspire others. Design is a tool that can be used to create novel and inspirational products. I feel to be truly unique, a design should offer something new and resonate with a person through the form, function and interaction with the piece. Designs that resonate with people become special and engaging.
