Jane Worthington

Having worked for four years at Philips in the product design department, British born Jane Worthington changed to designing furniture. She designed the Balou model for Leolux, a teddy bear with soft forms that, as it were, embraces you when you sit in it. This cosy feel is a characteristic of the designs Jane has created for Leolux. At the Cologne International Furniture Fair in 2006, a much-talkedabout new design was presented: Gisa, Jane’s swan. Vol de Rêve Inspired by her Gisa design, Jane Worthington created a beautifully elegant seating system in 2006 with sofas and elements that fit effortlessly in every interior. ‘Vol de Rêve plays on a more flexible way of living,’ says Jane about this design. ‘Relaxing, welcoming guests, dining, you can do that all on and around Vol de Rêve. The model offers a choice of two different arms, which each radiate their own atmosphere. The various elements permit creative combinations for any interior.’
