Black + Blum is an Anglo-Swiss partnership who joined forces in 1998 and based ourselves in London, the European heart of design. As a design consultancy we advise companies on any creative aspect. This accumulating insight into different markets catalyzed the decision to develop our own range of products. It has since become a vehicle to fully explore and enjoy our creativity. Our designs have won numerous awards and are sold through selected stores all over the world. We are driven by the opportunity to give each design its own unique character and soul. Our brief is to create functional products that will charm and entertain. We are passionate about design and realize that a true Black + Blum product is always a joint input of Dan and Martin’s personalities. Hopefully you will get as much enjoyment from Black + Blum products as we got from designing them.

From a manufacturing background, Dan Black grew up discussing products and design with his family from an early age. His passion and skill for design was recognized in a first class honors degree from the respected Design for Industry course at the University of Northumbria (Newcastle).  Dan gained further professional foresight working at IDEO (London). Frog Design (California) and under Julian Brown at Studio Brown (Bath). Dan completed successful group projects with his friend Martin Blum whilst studying in Newcastle, sparking the idea for the creative partnership that is now black + blum.
Martin Blum was born and raised in Switzerland. An early apprenticeship as a commercial clerk with a product design company provided his first insight on the development and distribution of products. He then gained an industrial design degree from the highly respected course at the University of  Northumbria (Newcastle). Martin’s cultural and design reference is a juxtaposition of his Swiss youth and enduring love affair for all things British.  Martin’s work has been acknowledged by internationally recognized design awards.
