about joe

Joe Parker is a British product and furniture designer whose work is characterised by a desire to produce quality objects with a meticulous and materially-driven approach. With a background in woodworking, Joe’s designs combine both contemporary production processes with minimal pared-back aesthetics and an honest approach to craftsmanship and quality.


Originally from Oxford, Joe graduated in Product Design at Nottingham Trent University with a first-class honours degree in 2017. With his Danish-inspired folding chair, Joe won the innovation award from the UK's Furniture Maker's Guild and has continued to design with a blend of Scandinavian-style and functional simplicity.


Since graduating Joe has worked as both a freelance creative and as an in-house designer at some of the UK's biggest retailers.
