Shane Schneck is an American-born and Stockholm-based industrial designer. He was born in Chicago and studied Architecture at the Miami University, Oxford, Ohio. His background in architecture and multidisciplinary approach led him to Milan in 1999 to collaborate with Piero Lissoni as Senior Industrial Designer at the Lissoni Associati. Today he has his own design studio in Stockholm, Sweden.
