Jeddediah Presland

Jeddediah returned to education as a mature student, bringing a decade of
experience and work in design, primarily up-cycling vintage 50’s and 60’s pieces,
plus a wide-ranging knowledge of artefacts, collectables and designers from his
research while working in this arena. This refined his knowledge and love of good
design, which then inspired him to undertake the Contemporary Furniture Design
degree course.
His signature style is simplicity, multi-functionality and originality – partly influenced
by life as a student, where furniture solutions to space problems suggested
themselves, as in his Sofa Buddy, Oak Bricks, Desk Chair and Mameluk
Plate designs, which fulfil multiple functions. He avoids mechanisms and complicated
joints. He likes things to be as simple and user friendly as possible, while also having
a sense of innovative style.
My briefs have been to design storage solutions and multi-functional pieces, which
have been successful and user friendly, as well as innovative
