Geof Ramsay is a multi-disciplinary designer whose work brings together traditional craft, modern manufacturing techniques and materiality through a uniquely modern Maritime lens. This ongoing exploration of modern Maritime product design led to the founding of Harbour, a design studio dedicated to the evolution and dissemination of the modern design of Atlantic Canada in 2014. Under the Harbour name, Geof’s designs re-imagine and re-frame ubiquitous vernacular elements and deeply rooted cultural icons of the Maritime’s distinct cultural character into contemporary design.
In 2013, Geof was named one of Canada’s top 10 emerging designers by Azure Magazine and was awarded best prototype for Hex Chair at the Toronto Interior Design Show in 2015. In 2017 his Topside Tray was voted ‘Fan Favourite” at the Umbra x TODO Compact Living Exhibit. His work has been exhibited at Maison et Objet, NYCxDesign, Toronto’s Interior Design Show and the Toronto Design Offsite Festival.
