Housefish was founded by Scott Bennett. Driven by a childhood love of F1 racing, Scott earned an automotive engineering degree from Loughborough University in England. He went on to be part of design teams for cars that have won the Indy 500, Indycar championship, and Baja off road races. He also helped setup new American-based Indycar and Formula 1 constructors, and branched out along the way to work on aircraft, industrial equipment, and consumer products. A changing landscape in racing led to a permanent shift to furniture design, and the formation of Housefish in 2008.
