Panton / 50

Customised Panton chair / Jump Studios, 2010

This post is a little belated but people keep asking me about it so here are some images and info on the project. To celebrate the Panton chair’s 50th anniversary, Vitra asked several architecture & interiors studios to customise a chair of their own – with no restrictions. We at Jump took up the challenge and really wanted to do something to celebrate the iconic form of the chair, to emphasise its distinct shape and outline. We didn’t want to just draw on it or treat the surface in some clichéd way.

So with help from Millenium Models, we cut away about 95% of the body of the chair, and then drilled a series of holes around the outside. 300m of fishing wire was then threaded between the holes, creating a really delicate structure in the centre, reminiscent of a Hepworth sculpture.

Anyway, out of the 31 entries, Jump were awarded first prize from a judging panel of Charles Saatchi, Terence Conran and Kevin McCloud. Nice.

The chair, along with all the other entries, was then auctioned to raise money for Shelter.

Photography by me. No you can’t sit on it.

Jump Studios / New website, 2010

The brand new Jump Studios website is officially now live. This has been a great project to work on – I began re-desingning this thing back in March/April, and then worked with developer Chris Barrow over the last couple of months to make it a reality. I’m really pleased with it, the whole thing has come together perfectly.

Seeing as I’m posting most of my design inspiration up on the Just Us blog these days, I thought I should update with some more of my own work on my personal blog. This is a little promotional piece I produced for Jump Studios (where I work), to showcase past projects, our clients & our design ethos.

Today I started work at Jump Studios in London, an exciting cross-disciplinary practice who’ve done a lot of interesting work. They mainly work on interior spaces and architecture, all with a strong graphic approach.
