Quinlan Osborne
Quinlan Osborne is the co-founder and creative director at Claste, a Montreal based studio and manufacturer specialising in collectible design.

Born in Ireland and raised in Canada he studied architecture at the University of Waterloo in Ontario and the University of Illinois at Chicago before turning to furniture design. His work has been recognized with numerous high-profile international design awards, including the Archiproducts Design Award, the Good Design Award from the Chicago Athenaeum Museum of Art and Design and in 2015 he received the TWENTY + CHANGE next generation award for emerging designers in Canada. His architectural background ingrained an obsession with the relationship between an object and its context as well as the interplay of volume and void and how it impacts form. His current work pushes his minimalist philosophy in directions that challenge prevailing notions of what furniture is and how it can relate to and function within both the world of architecture and design as well as simultaneously pursuing concepts more prevalent in contemporary art.
