Corinna Warm is founder and creative director at STUDIO WARM.
A graduate of the prestigious Central Saint Martins College of Art and Design, Warm worked with the ‘Who’s Who’ in avant-garde design in Milan and London, before spending three years designing for royal cabinet maker David Linley, where she was exposed to the fundamentals of traditional cabinet making and classical furniture design and production - a turning point in her career which fundamentally changed her focus and design sensibility, instilling a love of natural materials and well crafted, long lasting design.
Warm went on to work as an Interior Design consultant on luxury developments across London and later moved into high-end Retail Design working with some of London’s most creative retail and branding agencies.
She founded her studio in 2008, following the successful launch of her brand ‘WARM’ during the London Design Festival in 2007. Her collection of contemporary furniture, traditionally crafted to the highest standard, was launched at a time when the designer maker/ crafts movement was still in its infancy and was lauded by industry experts for its high quality and ‘contemporary- classic’ design.
The studio has since grown into a boutique design practice working on a diverse mix of projects across disciplines and continues to design and distribute its own label collection.
Warm is renowned for her warm, contemporary design and timeless elegance, balanced with an often sculptural aesthetic. Her work is driven by an interest in rich, natural materials and pure and simple - yet functional forms, created with longevity in mind.
Her work has been presented in exhibitions in New York, Hong Kong, Stockholm, Paris and Milan and has been published in the national and international press.
Corinna Warm was born in Berlin, Germany.
She lives and works in London.
