Jeffrey Bernett was born in Illinois. He studied Business Management at Northwestern University and University of Minnesota and graduated from Furniture Design at Parnham College.
Based in Nyc, Jeffrey Bernett founded his firm in 1995, and presented his first collection “Ideas for Production” at the 1996 International Contemporary Furniture Fair (ICFF) in New York garnering the top honour, the Editor’s Award for “Best of Show”.
Since then, Bernett’s work has spanned disciplines, extending from design related, problem-solving products, to larger, more complex systems. Jeffrey Bernett believes that the best solutions emerge from equal parts humanity, intellect and reativity, and he is fortunate enough to be to work with several of Europe’s best-regarded manufacturers.
His firm holds numerous patents, and has received many international design awards.
