My passion is working with wood that tells a story, timber that has had a life long before it was carried through the workshop doors. I do all I can to preserve that story. I consider each piece ensuring I retain all of the character that you just can’t recreate without the long passage of time.
I design components around the timber that frame it and celebrate it. Folded and powder coated steel is my complementary material of choice. The confident clean geometry of the steel has an incredible contrast against the unpredictable patina of the reclaimed timbers.
My name is Ben Cramp and I am an award winning industrial designer who has been fortunate enough to work for some of the worlds most influential design consultancies in both the UK and Australia. After 14 years working in product design I decided to follow my heart and focus my energy on combining a long held passion for furniture with sustainability.
Jam's distinctive design language is a result of my selfish desire to create objects that I love with the optimistic faith that others will agree.
I am proud of everything Jam stands for and everything we make :)
