Home Truths


Bill Amberg

Season 2, Ep. 7

Bill Amberg’s luxury leather goods - his bags, his purses, his baby slings and his floors, are characterised by their buttery softness, by the caramel tones and bright colours, and by how lovely they are to touch. But although his goods tend to belong in a fairly rarfied world, Bill himself is welcoming, passionate and playful inventor, constantly looking for new ways to improve on the material that has been the enduring love affair of his career. He came of age in London at the same time as Tom Dixon, when there was a punky attitude and anything goes approach to design, and its fascinating to see how that feeling has stayed with him throughout his career.
