Third Generation Furniture by Jason Fletcher

Jason Fletcher is an industrial designer and recent MA graduate from the University of the Arts, Central Saint Martins in London.  His latest project Third Generation Furniture is concerned with design and resource management – a range of furniture created specifically to be reused rather than thrown away.  The products are designed with standardized connective parts and sections allowing flexibility and variety in use and reuse over time.  The project attempts to divert products and materials with functional value back into the cycle of consumption  (rather than landfill) through modular re -integration. “It also encourages reuse by presenting alternative functional values in products through modularity in design.”  What’s more, they look fantastic!
