Jethro Macey Adds Whimsy & Texture To Usually Ordinary Items

Innovative 26 year old designer Jethro Macey has been hailed as a 'Name to Watch' in 2008 by the Telegraph Magazine and the recipient of several impressive design awards. He has self-produced many products and collaborated with companies like Decode London and Worldwide Fred for both mass produced and limited edition products.

Side boards, wall hooks, table lamps, wall-mounted bathroom cabinets and floor tiles get infused with texture and whimsy to create unique and charming alternatives to the ordinary.

Jethro, in his own words:

"My approach to my work and practice is to design products with both purposeful intent and visual appeal. I incorporate digital technologies into my design process alongside hands on construction techniques.

My work is designed in response to either self a directed brief or commission and is designed with the notion of a batch or mass production run in mind.

I established my business in early 2006 and design and manufacture a range of interior products sold through a selection of independent retailers both in the UK and abroad."
