Jason Whiteley is one of a new generation of designers exploring a historically grounded approach to making objects and spaces, while eschewing the irony of postmodernism. He trained as an architect in New Zealand and has collaborated for a number of years with Pritzker-prize winning Swiss architects Herzog & de Meuron on architecture and design projects in New York, Sao Paulo, London and Qatar. In 2010 he established his studio in order to develop architectural projects across a broad range of scales, alongside furniture projects and functional objects for private commission. Currently based in London, he is undertaking a range of architecture, furniture and lighting projects in the UK & Europe, South-East Asia and New Zealand.
Whiteley has designed the Studio Chair and Low Stool for Resident.
