Derbyshire born product and furniture designer Jason Walker specialises in
producing functional contemporary designs.
A graduate of Nottingham Trent University with a First Class BA (Hons)
in Information Graphics, Jason Walker was awarded a university
commendation for his dissertation - A Playground for Design: The parks
and placas of Barcelona.
Jason Walker achieves a seamless connection between 3-Dimensional and
2-Dimensional design. Inspired by the Spanish Catalan culture, Jason’s
work embraces the curvature of line, sensuality of form and organic
structures of nature.
He is strongly influenced by his love of Spanish culture which he
acknowledges as the source of endless inspiration for his work. Jason
comments, “Spanish design has long been a great source of inspiration to
me and when I design a piece of furniture or sculpture, I endeavour to add
a pinch of ‘La Vida Español’, which embraces and exhilarates my approach
to the objects that surround us on a daily basis.”
In 2000 Jason spent over two years working in Los Angeles, which he
found to be an incredibly enriching experience.
“My time in Los Angeles had a profound influence on my aspirations as a
designer. It was great to taste the exciting flavours of this creative cocktail
which has left me with an appetite for more!”
“Living and working in Los Angeles gave me the time and opportunity to get
under its skin. Enthusiasm was always high and I was privileged to associate
with some of the most interesting and creative people I have ever met.”
