Studia J is the design practice of Jeanie Mulligan that focuses on furniture, lighting & object design.

Jeanie is a scientist turned designer, whose aesthetic gravitates toward clean simplicity. Drawing on her background as a biologist, she tends toward natural shapes and materials along with repeating forms.

Her approach to design often references objects found in nature in a gestural way; she also tends to incorporate negative space into her work in order to feature her favourite material, light.

Since becoming a parent, she has become fascinated with the pressures that busy modern life and the need to share space imposes on design, resulting in a mise en place (French: “everything in its place”) approach to design. This philosophy is driven by a belief that great design is about making spaces most accessible with the least amount of effort, so that in turn, we are able to focus on the people and moments in our lives.
