International is an award winning industrial design studio based in London, UK, founded in 2011 by designers Robin Grasby & Marc Bell.

Robin Grasby and Marc Bell collaborated on their first joint project in 2010 after both graduating with BA{Hons} Three Dimensional Design from Northumbria University, UK.  Their first concept project Maintenance - a modular cleaning system - was exhibited in London in July 2010, and went on to receive a Wallpaper* Design Award in January 2011. Based on the success of this project, the pair set up studio together under the name International.

The studio was selected to take part in D3 Contest 2012 at IMM Köln. Here Grasby and Bell were presented with an Interior Innovation Award by the German Design Council for their new project Apollo. The lighting system was in production the following year and the brand International has since begun to grow as the commercial producer of the studio's own projects.

Adaptability and a focus on standardised fittings are strong directives throughout International's practice. The studio's ethos serves to impart added value and longevity to functional products by presenting frequent opportunity for user customisation. They simultaneously work to simplify fabrication through innovation in universal manufacturing processes, whilst upholding a restrained and economic use of materials.
