Kate Swanson

Kate Swanson is a lawyer turned entrepreneur and the founder and CEO of ENSEMBL. ENSEMBL is a modern housewares brand engineering high-performance tools that optimize space. Stackware, ENSEMBL's debut product, is a collection of multifunctional nesting cookware. After years of city-living and struggling with storage, Kate was driven to build the product she desperately wanted but could not find: pots and pans that actually fit. On the way, she has discovered the need for better housewares runs deeper than cookware alone, setting ENSEMBL on a mission to rethink the concepts of utility and design throughout the home.  In bringing ENSEMBL to life, Kate has paired a design-forward vision with relentless passion, pioneering a new way to engineer the tools we use every day and re-imagining stagnant product categories. 
When Kate is not busy with ENSEMBL she dedicates her time to animal rescue as a founding board member of Save Our Scruff: Rescue and Rehome. She also, unsurprisingly, loves to cook.
