Janey Speers

Janey enjoys the element of playfulness that comes with a materials led approach to the design process. Her work explores the role of colour, texture and form in the creation of beautiful objects and magical moments in materiality.

Janey joined the Designers in Residence scheme at Northumbria University in 2016 for the opportunity to expand her knowledge of new materials and manufacturing processes in the context of lighting, product and accessories.

Recent projects have explored the use of resin and how combinations with other materials can create luxury products. This explorative approach to design has resulted in both commissioned work and products sold in galleries. Currently, she is running a number of projects for external clients alongside developing a range of elegant accessories for women.
