Jillian Pai, Director at Iconic Revolution Furniture Design


As founder and advocate of client relations at Iconic Revolution, Jillian is always seeking opportunities to use the Iconic team’s design skills to create meaningful products. Jillian’s concepts are realized through empathetically identifying with user needs, and by evaluating gaps in the market. “We always add innovations to improve the application over existing products on the market, and incorporating memorable details that interior designers remember to specify.”
As an inventor, Jillian is always ahead of the curve on technology and enjoys contemplating futuristic “what-ifs” that often lead to more practical product solutions for their clients using existing technology available today. Jillian has a dual degree in industrial design and interior design, that she leverages to create typical layouts that interior designers can use for space planning. With 30 years experience in designing and manufacturing designs, she knows how to take a project from the concept through production.Jillian provides direction and resources to the design team, she continually advocates for client’s needs, and keeps projects on track. Her other interests are photography, graphic design, canoeing, and oil painting.

Sean Scott, Design Director at Iconic Revolution Furniture Design


As Iconic’s Design Director, Sean Scott pours creativity into each concept while keeping the design purposeful and pure. For Sean, design is about form, function, and aesthetic as well as understanding market trends, and applying these elements to suit the clients needs.
Sean’s passion for great design is only rivaled by his commitment to manufacturability. His knowledge of materials and manufacturing processes lends to his capabilities to design products to a targeted price point defined by his clients. Sean has previously held positions of Design Director at Niedermaier, Senior Industrial Designer at Jordan Mozer, Principal Designer at S2 Design, and staff industrial designer at Roadmaster, a global manufacturer of exercise equipment. Sean has also been an adjunct professor of furniture design at Columbia College in Chicago teaching within the product design department. As an educator he was instrumental in building a dialogue between students & the design process as applied to furniture design as well as to share knowledge and best practices. When Sean is not making his clients happy, he’s taking in some live music amongst the Chicago concert scene, connecting with the art & design community at special events, or expanding his creativity by making culinary masterpieces in the kitchen.

Iconic’s ability to develop unique designs exceeded our expectations for the work that we asked them to do. The quality was excellent and the number of ideas were more than we expected. Their creative work offered fresh and trending directions that we would have not arrived at on our own. I will be using Iconic on future projects and would highly recommend their services to others with out hesitation.
