About Jonas' Design

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.

About Items

Unique, handmade furniture and home accessories.

Through my education and experience as a prosthetist I have learnt to work with a wide variety of different materials such as wood, metal, plastics, carbon fiber, silicone, textiles, leather and many more.

Currently I’m living and working on design projects in my studio in Shanghai.

If you are interested to buy one of my pieces please contact me.
