I, Jonas Merian, was born in Switzerland in 1976. I’m a freelance furniture designer and maker but my background is in prosthetics and orthotics. I have been working in this field for the past 17 years in Switzerland, North Korea and China. In 2009 I decided to take a break from my career as a prosthetist in order to concentrate on furniture design.
I always liked to work with my hands and started early to build my own furniture and lamps.
