Description/

Gregor Jenkin is widely lauded as one of South Africa’s foremost designers. A self-proclaimed ‘maker of things’, his interest in engineering, intervention and re-imagining has shaped unique and storied pieces and a pared down vernacular that is at once nostalgic and highly contemporary.

The Gregor Jenkin Studio functions as an engineering environment – a systematic workshop that sets out to come up with solutions to certain problems. Each piece is a result of a search for a new way of doing something old. In this way, Jenkin and his small team strive to create functional objects that are at once thoughtful and, by extension, thought provoking. The Cape Town-based studio is inspired by hands-on production, well-thought-out engineering and the beauty of the component and the system. The studio creates an array of short-run products that are at once sophisticated and accessible, yet strange and intriguing.
Jenkin was the first African designer to feature at Design Miami and has pieces in the permanent collection of the Philadelphia Museum of Modern Art. He was the first recipient of the Design Foundation Icon Award in 2012, which he won again in 2017.
