Jake Phipps graduated from John Makepeace’s furniture design school, Parnham College, in 1999. He began his career as a cabinetmaker, designing and making one-off pieces to commission. In 2005 he set up his own design studio in London and now deals with projects varying from one-off commissions, to limited editions and production pieces. His award-winning work is characterized by a narrative yet functional aesthetic. Full of character, and far from ordinary, there is a playful design elegance that aims to strike a strong emotional chord with the people that will use them.
