Born in England, John Reeves is an internationally acknowledged, award-winning designer whose passion lies in working locally and regionally on an interactive level where design is not only communicated – but felt.
By doing so, John has honed a particular and pragmatic skill base; traveling, living and working with the craftspeople on our planet.
These travels not only establish a better understanding of global resources, but also the relevance a design can have to our global environment; creating and perhaps rediscovering unique ties directly between makers, designers and buyers; having a hand in each of the processes allows for an undiluted and “real” conduit from production to the end user with genuine responsibility and accountability.
Reeves’ tenet of designing not for the trend but with longevity in mind, continually striving to create timeless pieces that are not for short term return on the market. In doing this he has developed a focused atelier with strong ties to production that nurtures honest, quiet research, ensuring deeper context and relevance as the portfolio evolves.
His unique furniture is designed for people who want something special – from homes to restaurants, hotels or other commercial projects.
