John G Williams Designer Profile
John G Williams is the award-winning designer of the Zene Dining chair.
John G Williams

John is a mechanical engineer by training and spent much of his early career working out how best to manufacture products, and how to design them for manufacture. His successful professional career has been acutely analytic and 'left brained'. But John is also a keen saxophonist and artist, with an interest in sculpture and photography. His recent composition and album launch demonstrate his 'right brain' activity. In furniture design, John melds both left and right brain contributions. He synthesizes creative inputs to compose a design, and then analyzes the prototype designs to work out how to improve them for manufacture as well as aesthetic strength. By successfully appealing to both aspects of this thought processing capacity John constructs some simple yet high impact design work.
