About Nick Munro
Bed Springs to Egg Cups
Nick Munro studied engineering and design at Nottingham University, Imperial College of Science and Technology and The Royal College of Art, London, and launched his career in design by turning bed springs into egg cups – an instant hit which won him the prize of UK Young Entrepreneur of the Year.
Since then, the Nick Munro brand has become synonymous with original, modern British design.
