Jeremy Broun FSDC
Furniture & Boxes
Jeremy's influences come more from the Scandinavian and Italian approaches to design and making. Working in a furniture factory on the production line early on was the most valuable experience as Jeremy uses efficient methodology and a balance of hand and machine methods to achieve original pieces, some of which are produced as repeats. He also creates lighting and builds innovative guitars.
