Richard Henley.

I am a multi-disciplinary designer, specialised in set design for film and theatre, and product design for interiors. Above all, I am interested in combining narratives with design and craftsmanship.

 

I’m always excited to speak about new projects, so please get in touch.

ABOUT
IMG_1165.JPG

I am a multi-disciplinary designer based in London, working fluidly between set design, product design, exhibitions, and more. My approach is deeply rooted in storytelling, and I firmly believe that sharing ideas across disciplines enhances the creative potential of any project.

I’ve had the privilege of contributing to major feature films including Wicked, Tony-nominated theatre productions such as Cabaret, and designing for leading interior design studios like Porta Romana.

With a wide-ranging skillset, I am able to work from concept to final delivery, visualising my designs through concept artwork and precise technical specification. Having worked extensively with fabricators and set builders, I have a strong understanding of materials and craftsmanship in order to then bring my designs to life.

I am always eager to explore new ideas and take on diverse projects. If you're interested in working with me or collaborating, please get in touch.
