The practice


Professional background
Jonas von Stedingk established Stedingk Industrial Design in 2009 after many years leading projects at the industrial design unit of Grimshaw Architects in his capacity as Project Leader at Billings Jackson Design, the company that until 2007 ran the unit for Grimshaw.  This is where he amongst other things led the design of the New York City bus shelters (picture right). Working within a large-scale architectural practice has meant integrating teams with a variety of expertise and acquiring a knowledge base in areas as diverse as furniture systems, lighting, signage, products, building detail design, cladding systems, solar energy integration, wind turbines, as well as branding, office design and urban planning. Jonas von Stedingk has continuined to build on his previous experience in the sustainable energy sector and today his practice counts a number of clients and contacts in that industry.



Stedingk Design delivers either through single-person interventions or through flexible project-based teams, drawing on a close network of professionals at the top of their field. Since setting up the practice, Jonas has formed teams with people ranging from architects and developers, to artists, web-site developers, clean-tech engineers and fashion designers.  This kind of flexibility and capacity to deliver the right team for complex projects is facilitated through the close connections between design-related professionals in a city like London and access to worldwide expertise.


Underlying approach
Jonas has worked and lived in four continents and is fluent in four languages.  This global perspective, coupled with on-the-ground experience, yields a versatility and openness of mind which we think is a good starting point for any creative work. Jonas trained both in the scientific as well as in the creative fields and applied arts; hence at the core of the practice’s design philosophy is a combination of a technical and logical approach together with a creative, very intuitive one.
