Architect & designer Craig Bassam and brand strategist & creative director Scott Fellows joined forces in 2003, forming BassamFellows. Following successful solo ventures, the two met up with a single, shared vision in mind: to return true craftsmanship and beauty to contemporary living. The two share a passion for the timelessness and masterful detailing of modern classic furniture. Their desire is to mix this with contemporary design and "blend it with honest materials, solid construction, beauty, and utility."
Raised in New York and completing his MBA at Harvard MBA, Fellows honed his branding skills working with international powerhouses such as Corning Housewares, Bally, and Ferragamo luxury goods. Bassam, who grew up in Sydney, was such a devotee of modernism that he eventually moved to New Canaan, Connecticut, where many of its architects lived and practiced. He began his own design studio there in 1997. Both had lived and worked in Europe, where they were influenced by the use of fine leather and wood. Over the years, the well-balanced design aesthetic of Bassam and Fellows has resulted in such iconic pieces as their Tractor Stool and the Tuxedo Collection for Herman Miller.
