Listen: Episode 4 of Clever – Brendan Ravenhill


On this episode of Clever, we talk to LA-based lighting and furniture designer Brendan Ravenhill who runs a studio under his name. From a youth in West Africa, to running a growing studio in Los Angeles, he’s made stops along the way that involve lobstering, boat-building, academia and a Schindler house.
