Re-designing a life. From Nike designer to interior design.

For the Discerning Few: If you are in the Portland area during design week, join in this event — I’d love to see you there!

Thursday, April 19, 7:00 PM to 9:00 PM

Great design transcends medium. But how do designers translate their work experience to new dimensions, and new disciplines? The days of working for one company and retiring with a gold watch are long gone. Designers today wear numerous hats, navigate between fields, and change companies often. Stewart Horner was a successful Nike designer who, at 47, reinvented himself as Penny Black Interiors. Living by the maxim “all or nothing,” his mission is to disrupt the interior design business in Portland and beyond, to provide unique interior solutions and product sourcing to suit the lifestyle of a discerning few. Hear his story of transformation, and his philosophy, and check out his penchant for signature hats.

Hosted by the ever colorful Kush Rugs.

Stewart Horner

Born in England, Stewart spent his youth on a BMX, a skateboard, or on a snowboard. He gained his Bachelor’s Degree at Kent Institute of Art and Design. Stewart has spent 20+ years as a multi disciplinary designer. He moved to Portland in 2004 to work as Design Director at Nike. Stewart's passion for design began at an early age—never satisfied with the way things were, he would spend hours re-imagining how they could be. His approach has always been led by the principle that aesthetics and function should be of equal consideration, and that rules are made by dictators and that beauty is subjective.

    you do the inside and I’ll do the outside.
    SO proud of you both.
