Allen is an award-winning, multi-disciplinary designer. In 1993, he established his design consultancy, Harry Allen Design, and the same year designed and produced a line of furniture called Living Systems, which he showed at the International Contemporary Furniture Fair. Since he has designed furniture, products and interiors for an illustrious roster of international clients.

Allen’s first major interior design commission was Moss, the design store in New York. His Bank in The Form of a Pig for Areaware has become a design icon. Recently completed projects include Life on a String: 35 Centuries of the Glass Bead, an exhibition at the Corning Museum of Glass, and two table lamps, Tybault and Esme, for Swarovski Lighting.

His industrial design work is in the permanent collections of the Museum of Modern Art in New York, the Brooklyn Museum of Art, the Denver Museum of Art, and the Philadelphia Museum of Art.

The public is invited to attend.
