Ashley Corbett-Smith of Corbet is a designer working in Sydney, Australia. With a background in both fashion design and photography, Corbett-Smith settled into product design after studying industrial design at both the University of Technology Sydney, in Australia and Tu Delft, in The Netherlands.
Corbett-Smith previously worked for Australian designer Adam Goodrum on diverse projects ranging from Alessi to Veuve Cliquot. More recently having designed furniture for Harbour Outdoor and Krost furniture, his practice has expanded to designing and crafting bespoke furniture and lighting, consulting, photography and art direction, which has led him to designing and producing objects under his own name and now Corbet.
The aesthetic of Corbet stems from a reductionist approach, attempting to create simple and honest objects, celebrating both form and materials in a playful way.
