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.
