Peter Harvey's design possesses something unique that has developed over the years, as a result of the different skills and influences attained from varied professions and specialist training.
As young boy, he would frequently visit a friend's boat yard where he was in awe of the craftsmanship, skills and exotic materials that he witnessed, this would lead him later on to engineering. Another profound influence at an early age, was the surrealist works of Dali which stroke a creative cord in his mind.
After a few years in the engineering industry, Peter Harvey chose to design window displays and became visual merchandising manger of Harrods London. He was instrumental to curating "The 20th Century Chair Exhibition"     
The event was a huge success, featuring the largest collection of designer/artist chairs to date in London, became a landmark in British Design curation, but also confirming for Peter what he himself should be designing.
In 1991 he established his own design/workshop and has since created sculpture like pieces of furniture. The connections between surrealism, amorphous forms and design are ever prevalent in his work. He works with historical references where he seeks a revival in the spirit of the late 60's and 70's Pop and enthusiasm of spirit that came with such movements, inspired by joy and fun that can be found in life, design and art and sees how the body can become an agent for the senses to be ignited. Creating a better life through design and using the  objects we surround ourselves with to lift our mood, are reoccurring themes in all his works.
Peter Harvey is known as one of Great Britain's most innovated designers and has gained international reputation with sculptural furniture and lighting creations of the highest technical precision. His work has been featured in many international Art Fairs such as Basel/Miami, Salone Internazionale del Mobile and Salone Satellite Milan, Design + Emotion at the Landesmuseum Karlsruhe Germany, to mention but a few. Smile Chair has become part of the Cosmit Eventi Permanent Design Collection.       
Always in touch with the upbeat of life to feed his creativity, Peter Harvey established a workshop/Gallery in the artistic hub of Mitte Berlin, from 2007 - 2010 and has since moved to Paris to explore further the vast territory of Art and Contemporary Design.
