Nick Ross founded his own studio in 2014. He is active in Stockholm and has since been noted several international awards, including: Formex Nova (2016), Design Parade 11 (Honorable mention in 2016), Architectural Digest's Emerging Designer Award (2014) Muuto Talent Award (2014) and Young Swedish Design Award (2011 and 2013).
Nick Ross's starting point is often linked to how historical ideals shape and reflect our contemporary. With a critical attitude, Ross explores and challenges historical facts to explain our contemporary. In the work of "Last of the Free", Ross has investigated and reflected on Scotland's history and how history was characterized by the influence of Rome. The proverb language is characterized by classical Roman antique remains as well as Caledonian remains that are preserved in Scotland's National Museum. Ross questions why cultures are sacred and why national identities are seen as static and must be protected from external influences? The chair is handcrafted in a Scottish (Corsehill) sandstone which, among other things, has been used in the building of Statue of Liberty and the National Portrait Gallery, Edinburgh Scotland.
