Mac Collins is a British designer and artist from Nottingham. He graduated with a degree in Three-Dimensional Design from Northumbria University, Newcastle, in 2018.

In the years since, he has been committed to designing and making narrative-rich and impactful furniture and objects. Mac’s work explores the intersection of cultures. As an artist of dual heritage, Mac draws on his British-Jamaican lineage to create artefacts that are often informed by the stories, charisma and experiences of his hybridised community.

Mac received the Emerging Design Medal (2021) and the Ralph Saltzman Prize (2022) which culminated in a solo exhibition at The London Design Museum (2022). Recent exhibitions include: ‘Discovered’ at the Design Museum, London (2022), ‘Harewood House Biennial: Radical Acts’ at Harewood House, Leeds (2022), ‘Open Code’ at Primary in Nottingham (2022) and ‘Dancing Beneath the Moon’ at the British Pavilion, Venice Biennale (2023).
