This is our intern, Sasha. She’s currently studying Interior Design at De Montfort University and is part-way through a year-long work placement at Faber. Outside of work and studying, Sasha enjoys spending quality time with friends and family and is always on the lookout for design inspiration. “I’m obsessed with architecture and interiors, so I’ll always be out exploring and taking pictures. But I also love a movie day all snuggled up on the sofa and really enjoy cooking,” she says.

Her daily duties at Faber include helping the team with various aspects of the design process, as well as managing her own project. “Working here has confirmed for me that this is what I want to do everyday – no two days are the same,” says Sasha. “My career plan B would be a racing driver. Preferably Formula 1 if they decide to have female drivers.”
