James Le Brun
A furniture and product designer with a focus on creating durable products through practical based learning and hands on experimenting. I believe designers now have an obligation and are responsible for getting more environmentally friendly products to market. This was the main emphasis I took towards my final year projects.
I have a vast range of experience working with my hands, from teaching woodwork to children in America, to working as an apprentice manufacturing bespoke kitchens while also learning a vast range of skills I have self-taught throughout the years.

Upcycled Printing Blankets
The project upcycles wasted printing blankets and turns them into a range of durable bags and accessories. The strength of the material allows the bag to be made solely from the printings blanket without the need for additional materials.
The duffel bag presents a combination of style and durability. It adapts to different environments through its range of carrying methods and material properties. Its 35-litre capacity makes it a suitable travel bag and ideal for airline carry-on luggage.
Jesmonite Bar Stool
The project carried out the idea of creating an exciting and pleasurable stool that would complement the natural form of the human body. This involved moulding and casting the stool to match the curves of a bottom but doing so in a form that would comfort all body sizes. The use of Jesmonite provides extreme strength and durability while keeping with my sustainable ethos.
