Daniel Mifsud

Dan Mifsud studied furniture design at London College of Furniture before gaining a B.Ed. in Design Education awarded by Exeter University. Consolidating his interest in narrative and socially engaged design, he has recently completed an MA in Narrative Environments at Central Saint Martins.

As co-founder and co-director of the Palace Furniture Group, Dan has launched work at the Milan Furniture Fair, as well as exhibiting in the UK. Since 2008 Dan has been pathway leader for 3D Design at UCA, Farnham. He previously taught at Cornwall College, where he helped develop the Furniture Design and Making course and its transition to a Foundation degree.

Since taking up his teaching post he has worked freelance for a number of national museums. In 2011, he was commissioned by the V&A to produce an ‘exploded’ replica of an 18th century French commode that told the story of production and craft. The commode and replica are on permanent display in the Dr Susan Weber Gallery for Furniture. Dan is a contributing writer for the V&A Conservation Journal and has co-written a number of articles for the publication.

Returning to his earlier training in furniture design, and consolidating his interest in museums and cultural heritage, Dan is now pursuing postgraduate study in furniture conservation.
