Scott Henderson is an American designer who heads the New York based design studio Scott Henderson Inc. He also serves as Principal and Co-Founder of MINT where he designs, manufacturers and distributes home accessory objects to over 250 retailers and museums throughout the world including The Museum of Modern Art and Design Within Reach. Scott is known for his ability to transform the mundane and his belief that if something makes you smile, it becomes easier to use.
