Ciaran Allen studied design in Belfast before moving to London, England. Since 2014 he has been undertaking a BA (Hons) in Design at Goldsmiths, University of London. Throughout his time studying design he has been involved in a number of conceptual projects, such as the successful 'Around the World in 80 Minutes', and projects that require his root interest - design-making. He is particularly proud of the Love-Seat (2011) and Mynah Teapot (2013). His Northern Irish upbringing has led to a belief in the importance of practicality and he is excited to combine this with the conceptual assignments of university.
