Jflemay: smart furniture for city dwellers
Jflemay furniture is our response to urbanisation, smaller apartments and premises, and the need to reduce waste.
Our furniture is not only flat-pack: it can return to its flat-pack state. It is easy to assemble, to take apart and to reassemble because it has no fasteners or small parts and requires no tools.
In order to support this flexibility, our furniture is made to last using sustainable, durable and recyclable materials. All our products are made in the United Kingdom with materials responsibly sourced within Europe.
About Jean-François C. Lemay
Jean-François C. Lemay, originally from Montreal in Canada, is an architect based in London. He founded his architecture and design studio in 2019 after nine years working for Foster and Partners, Sir Norman Foster’s company.
He graduated in architecture with distinction from McGill University in 2006. After one year as an apprentice at Moshe Safdie and Associates in Boston, during which he worked on the Marina Bay Sands in Singapore, he went to study at the Architectural Association in London, where a scholarship covered his tuition fees. He graduated with an AA Diploma in 2009.
During his time at Foster and Partners he completed the AA Part 3 Professional Studies and became a RIBA chartered architect. He worked for three years on the Stirling Prize winning Bloomberg Offices in London, and for five years as an Associate on the Oceanwide Center towers in San Francisco, where he was responsible for the project’s planning application, historic restoration and public spaces.
In 2019 his furniture was selected by Elle Decor Italia as among the best of the Salone Satellite exhibition. It currently features in the Salone del Mobile’s exhibition of young designers at La Rinascente in Milan.
He teaches architecture occasionally at the universities of Brighton, Nottingham Trent and University College London. He is accredited LEED Green Associate.
