Jess Fügler is an American designer whose work explores ideas of narrative, process, and value in domestic objects. Weaving together craft and industrial processes, Jess’ designs possess a poetic playfulness that derive from her hands-on approach to making alongside inspiration from past and current cultures. Internationally trained, Jess holds a Master’s in Design Products from the Royal College of Art in London, with a Bachelor’s in Industrial Design from Pratt Institute in Brooklyn, New York alongside additional studies in the Gestaltung program at Bauhaus Universität in Weimar, Germany.
