James Benham

James strives to design functional products that represent a bold, deliberate reduction of components and form. His portfolio explores processes, materials and finishes. Prototyping ideas at an early stage allows him to understand how attributes such as weight, texture and balance will inform the final outcome.

During his three year residency at Northumbria university, James has undertaken a variety of collaborative design work from a ‘future materials’ research project for Unilever to product development for the medical device company Polyphotonix.
