Deco - for greener interiors

Read all about it.

Jay Watson is an Oxfordshire-based, Australian-born independent designer maker who likes to put things to good use. So where most of us see rabbit hutch lining as a potential use for old newspapers, Watson sees seating cubes. 'I am very into recyclability and I wanted to make a piece of furniture that was truly recyclable. A lot of manufacturers claim their products can be fully recycled but in fact they often can't be, or it can't be done easily. The Read All About It cube can be.'

Innovative UK Furniture Designers

"...Then there's the loveable Jay Watson.

The thermochromic finish of his ‘Linger a Little Longer’ table and benches responds to the heat of any plate, mug or serving dish – or body part – placed on it, to leave an ephemeral ‘watermark'. Watson's designs make entertaining that bit more fun, while making a comment on how ‘precious’ we can become about furniture!"
