Join us for a conversation with Jason Turnidge, our Wood And… third place prizewinner! Founder of Turnidge Industries, we’ll talk with Jason about his training as an architect and how he brings that sensibility to his modular furniture. We’ll explore his overlaps with Esherick’s practice, and discuss his work in the exhibit, Factory Low Stool, highlighting his approach to redefining craft for a post-industrial age and using machinist techniques to create tools for contemporary living.
Jason Turnidge founded Turnidge Industries in 2016 as a design and manufacturing studio. Prior to establishing his studio, Jason worked as an architect with Westlake Reed Leskosky / DLR Group from 2012-2016, and as a Design/Maker at Thom Stauffer Architects from 1997-2008. There, he participated in teams that developed work that has been recognized regionally and nationally with numerous AIA and design awards. Turnidge received his Bachelor of Architecture degree from Kent State University and, in 2002, he received a Master of Architecture degree from the University of Pennsylvania. He is an adjunct faculty member in architecture at Kent State University.
