The designer Adrian Gerald Sallis Benney (1930 - 2008) was a celebrated British goldsmith and silversmith. He was born in Hull, Yorkshire and served as the Professor of Silversmithing and Jewellery at the Royal College of Art from 1974 - 1983. He was made a CBE in 1995. During a career spanning more than 50 years, he was the first British craftsman to hold four Royal Warrants simultaneously. His work has had a major impact on the survival of domestic silver in Britain.

In his early years, Benney was influenced by the purity and minimalism of Scandinavian design. From 1957 to 1969 he designed stainless steel cutlery for Viners. His most popular design was "Studio" and the design remains popular to this day.

Certainly one of Britain's most interesting 20th-century designers.
