About

Jason Taylor is an established designer who has worked on many diverse projects and commissions. He has exhibited and sold his range of lighting and furniture around the world, in art galleries and museums, as well as high street shops and design outlets, such as The Conran Shop.

He works with everyday items or ‘readymades’, and loves tinkering with them to combine, adapt and transform them in to new designs. Jason set himself the mammoth challenge of using mundane, household objects found in pound shops, hardware stores, but mostly his own home, to create a new piece of work every day of the year.

He found the process fun, exhilarating, frustrating and confusing in equal measure. Whilst, at first glance, most of these objects appear to have no function, being pieces of pure humour and whimsy, he hopes that some will provide the starting point or creative spark for his next great design classic.

The show includes over 100 of his ‘Everyday Objects’ included in the exhibition is a selection of Jason’s classic design objects; his Grate Lights, his Walk Lights and his scrubbing brush seats, along with specially commissioned work for the exhibition.
