Spencer Nikosey

Spencer Nikosey is an American Industrial Designer, Master Craftsman and founder of the KILLSPENCER brand of premium products. From his Los Angeles design and manufacturing studio, Spencer and his team of artisans are handmaking products engineered for performance and utility. 

Inspired by a WWII military yard field trip during his ArtCenter College of Design days, Spencer’s early concept of minimalism and superior craftsmanship in leather goods was born. Nikosey  first designed leather backpacks for himself, after not being satisfied with what he saw in-market. Not having any way to produce the bag, he purchased an industrial sewing machine and taught himself the trade. That original piece of equipment is still in service at his Echo Park atelier, along with a spectrum of unique manufacturing artifacts and high-end materials.

INDUSTRIAL DESIGNER

For Nikosey, the principals of industrial design begin with function – and the theory that absolute function is artistic in nature. His product designs have a purity in both utility and aesthetic. Nikosey’s use of high performing materials and beautiful hides make his leather products sought after statement pieces for the discerning customer. 

Spencer’s passion for music, sports and photography created a unique set of offerings for the enthusiast. His quilted leather racket case will up your style game, the KILLSPENCER branded basketballs are conversation starters and the company’s guitar and camera straps are truly indulgent.
