Mandy Shanahan is a young designer that brings fresh and exciting ideas to Phillips Collection. As Lead designer for the company, she works closely with product development and has designed into the collection with an organic contemporary style.
While studying architecture at Clemson University, Mandy spent a semester in Genoa, Italy. This experience is where she found her passion for furniture and product design. She travelled around Italy and the Netherlands where she was inspired by designs from top contemporary designers. While exhibiting her student project in the Salone Satellite exhibition at the Milan Furniture Fair, she knew that product design was the direction she wanted to go in.
After graduating from Clemson in 2008, Mandy attended the University of North Carolina at Greensboro for a master’s in Interior Architecture with product design as her concentration. It was here that she was connected with Phillips Collection and became one of their first interns working with Jason Phillips in the creative department.
Now, Mandy has spearheaded Phillips Collection new line of UL lighting, and has also broadened the collection with items such as table bases and wall décor.
