Vibrant hues and soft shapes define Adam’s imaginative world. An artist and designer based in London, Furman creates elegant, welcoming spaces that encourage free expression and creative wonder. Their work plays with genres, themes, cultural references, and materiality to craft immersive experiences rooted in history and pleasure.

Furman's spaces reject sharp edges and judgments, aiming instead to provide safe havens where people can escape and feel free. Through their mastery of colour, form and quality craftsmanship, people are invited into gentle, non-conformist worlds that spark the imagination. There are no rules in this universe - only carefree self-expression and a sensual celebration of the human spirit.

Trained in architecture, Furman now works across diverse scales and disciplines, from painting, videos and prints, to large public artworks, furniture, interiors, and beyond. Their vibrant aesthetic combines diverse influences into a distinctive visual language that is singular and very much their own. Exhibited and collected internationally, Furman's work delights in community, inclusivity, and the transforming power of spaces that provide joy, inspiration, and the permission to be purely oneself.

Adam's work has been exhibited all over the world, and is held in the collections of the Design Museum (London), the Sir John Soane’s Museum, the Carnegie Museum of Art, the National Gallery of Victoria, the National Museum (of Norway), the Abet Museum, and the Architectural Association.
