London-based Asif Khan works across the fields of architecture, industrial and furniture design, and is dedicated to pushing these disciplines in new and unexpected directions. He studied architecture at the The Bartlett School, University College London and in 2007, founded his studio Asif Khan Ltd. He was named Designer of the Future by Design Miami in 2011 and one of five Designers to Watch by the New York Times in 2011. Recently, he has also been awarded as the Architect of The Year by the German Design Council.
For the 2012 London Olympics Khan designed Coca-Cola’s pavilion for the Olympic Park, following a search for the best young architecture studio in the country. Significantly, this design marked the first time in Coca-Cola’s history that the global brand commissioned an Olympic showcase feature without a single Coke logo on it. Other notable projects in 2012 included “Parhelia” for Swarovski, exhibited at Design Miami.
Khan’s practice explores how material and social innovations can fundamentally alter the way people experience and shape their environment, realised through rigorously detailed and delivered outputs. His clientele includes names like Swarovski, Coca-Cola, the Design Museum, Design Miami, The British Council, The Royal Academy of Arts, The Architecture Foundation, Idée, Sawaya & Moroni, Danese Milano, Paul Smith and many others.
