Jonathan S. Igharas is a multidisciplinary designer & maker based in San Francisco, California
With an interest in blurring the boundaries between art, design, and craft, Jonathan has developed furniture, lighting, objects, and spaces for design studios and companies in Vancouver, New York City, and San Francisco. Before joining Fuseproject as an environmental designer in 2018, he spent a year traveling as an independent designer taking on a wide range of creative projects and personal pursuits in the Philippines, USA, Canada, and Norway. Jonathan holds an industrial design degree from Emily Carr University of Art & Design in Vancouver, Canada and briefly studied at the Design Academy in Eindhoven, Netherlands. Jonathan’s creative practice has evolved into delving into the intangible impact objects and environments have to the human experience. Through this lens he constantly challenges himself to imagine noble ways of activating and transforming his surroundings from neutral experiences into collective, meaningful ones. Ultimately, Jonathan aspires to seek holistic approaches to designing products and environments that are inclusive, human-centric, sensitive to materials, processes, and relational to their makers, histories, and cultures.
