Run by designer/maker Matt Pearson, MJP Studio is an Adelaide based furniture and object design studio.
We strive to create objects to be woven into the fabric of the family home: objects that become a living, breathing part of the family. We want our pieces to create long-lasting memories for the people that use them. Just imagine the stories that they could tell.
Our designs celebrate a rich material use, and the makers attention to detail. Every piece is designed and crafted with the utmost care and sensibility.
Products are well designed, standardised furniture and objects that people can buy directly from us, or via our select retail network across Australia.
Handmade pieces are tailored to suit each client. These beautifully crafted designs are all made to order and can be tweaked to suit the individual home that they are destined for. Timber, finish and sizing are just a few of the ways these designs can be made your own.
Limited pieces are exclusive. They showcase iterative design thinking and skilful crafting. Included are low volume and one-off concept designs for both commission and exhibition. They also include large residential and commercial projects that MJP Studio are involved with.
