The JamFactory Furniture Studio

The JamFactory Furniture Studio is the interface between ideas and making. As a studio we offer a two year career building, intensive program for emerging Furniture and Product Designers. The studio is a ‘real world’ platform for talented and motivated designers to engage in product development and collaborative commissioned projects.

This year we have two second year associate designers, Adam Cantwell and Samantha Bosward and one first year; Jorge Criollo-Carillo. These three designers have made leaps and bounds in expanding their creative outlooks and folios.

This year alone they have developed a selection of outstanding objects and lighting, worked on large commission projects, and begun the production of the JamFactory Salad Servers, all of which has been achieved in an environment that is that nurtures creative exploration and encourages and stimulates development of individual designers.

    Dear Jam Factory,

    I love everything you make. Please never open your online store or I fear I will skip a mortgage repayment.

    A Fan.
