NAME TO WATCH AC­CORD­ING TO ILSE CRAW­FORD SI­MON JONES STU­DIO

ELLE Decoration (UK) - - Style The Britlist -

Ilse Craw­ford (founder of Stu­dioilse) was awarded an MBE for ser­vices to in­te­rior de­sign in 2014. Here, she tells us why Si­mon Jones and Jack Neville – aka Si­mon Jones Stu­dio ( be­low) – are names to watch (stu­dioilse.com). ‘The beauty of Si­mon Jones Stu­dio’s fur­ni­ture lies in its in­tel­li­gent sim­plic­ity,’ says Craw­ford. ‘The prac­tice is built on the cre­ative use of ev­ery­day ma­te­ri­als, with a strong fo­cus on qual­ity work­man­ship and care­ful de­tail. Its pieces are thought­ful and well pro­duced.’ Work­ing out of its Ken­tish Town work­shop, the brand com­bines fur­ni­ture de­sign (‘RK’ ta­ble, be­low) with ar­chi­tec­tural projects. It has worked on seat­ing for Ikea’s col­lab­o­ra­tion with Hay, cre­ated a dis­play sys­tem for the De­sign Mu­seum, and ta­bles for Se­bas­tian Wrong at Es­tab­lished & Sons. Its new range for Hay will launch this au­tumn (si­mon­jonesstu­dio.co.uk).
