Mark
Jess Fügler is an American designer whose work explores ideas of narrative, process, and value in domestic objects. Inspired by past and current cultures along with industrial production and handcraft, Jess' work possesses a poetic playfulness driven by a hands-on approach to materials and making.

Jess lives and works in New York where she runs her own cross-disciplinary studio practice developing products, spaces, and brand strategies. She is the Co-Founder of Other Kingdom and teaches at Parsons School of Design. Alongside her own practice, Jess works for others in the design industry; currently as Senior Product Developer for HAY and previously as the Design Director for Matter Made.

Internationally trained, Jess holds a Master’s degree in Design Products from the Royal College of Art in London, a Bachelor’s degree in Industrial Design from Pratt Institute in Brooklyn, New York alongside additional studies in the Gestaltung program at Bauhaus Universität in Weimar, Germany.
