Jacob is an award-winning designer & architect based in Toronto, Canada and in Berlin, Germany.
His designs push the limits of convention, introducing exciting twists in form and function.
Jacob works in his workshop, collaborates on projects and products, and teaches product design.
Driven by curiosity and a desire for challenge, Jacob works with a broad-range of materials and techniques to create innovative design solutions.
Inspired by the craft traditions and working techniques of the countries he visits and works in, Jacob draws on this wide base of ideas and forms as a jumping off point for lateral exploration and invention.
Collaborating with other multidisciplinary artists and makers further allows Jacob to continue to expand the boundaries of existing design towards developing new products for the contemporary market.
Every custom-project begins with an initial client consultation.
I then develop a design concept, and we meet to discuss your options. Once we finalize the details together, your design goes into production.
You will be kept up-to-date on the progress every step of the way.
As the creator, developer and craftsman for each project, I ensure the highest quality design and construction, arriving at innovative solutions through lateral thinking and great attention to dimensions, function, and materials. You will always be dealing directly with me, optimizing communication and ease across the process.
