Phillips’ designs are featured in the March issue of VERANDA along with other winners of the magazine’s inaugural The Art of Design Award. Recognition of his furniture designs, leading the ‘Trade Secrets’ category, has led to a whirlwind of media attention. In the first two months of this year alone, he has been published in more than a dozen design and lifestyle magazines as well as more than 150 blogs.
“I take all of this success with a lot of humility,” said Phillips, vice president and creative director of the family-owned company. “I’m still just a 26 year old with the same interests as others my age. I just happen to be extremely motivated and have been fortunate in my life to be able to extrapolate on the things that matter to me.”
In addition to his roles at the Phillips Collection, he manages his own brand. “The former takes up most of my time but I have commitments through Jason Phillips Design to travel to design centers around the country and speak on panels regarding interior design, as well as numerous awards I’ve won in ’09 and early this year where I have to participate to varying extents,” Phillips said. “It is hard work and if I took the time to stop and consider things, I might not be able to get my engine back in gear!”
The young designer’s work appears through Phillips Collection dealers in Florida, such as Robb & Stucky, Judith Norman, Design Depot, Fine Line Design and Raul Carrasco, as well as through design firms like Mark Michaels and Interiors by Steven G.
His noteworthy new designs include the spaghetti-like Continuum Table, which was inspired by models of the space-time-continuum where folds in space and time are created through invisible networks. Al Dente is a decidedly different take on fluidity; relying on rigid rods that explore a more fractal sense of space and density.
At Phillips Collection’s High Point showroom, retail buyers also can expect to see a new collection of outdoor teak furniture as a result of a partnership with Thai-based Deesawat.
