part future and part past, part rich and part raw, cape town’s gregor jenkin masterminds his strongly silhouetted furniture and other functional objects. far from being strange, the design aesthetic is cleverly cryptic with a nod to industrialization and heritage alike. his re-examining of everyday objects and appropriating them to function in different ways is in complement to the schism between the handmade and the manufactured… these duplicities bring about a thought provoking element to his work which enriches their otherwise singular apocalyptic designs; being produced in short-runs lends another angle of exclusivity to the mass-produced dichotomy; it is for this that his work has been widely acclaimed, recognized, praised and have since become iconic and collectable.
