About

Born in Cape Town in 1985, Jesse Ede is a self-taught designer who favours a materials and process-driven approach to furniture design. Working primarily in aluminium, stone, bronze and brass, he looks to celebrate the rawness of uncontrollable outcomes, from processes that are uncommonly used. Jesse’s childhood was spent at the workbench of his father, an artist, designer, carpenter and leather worker, schooling him in a wide array of skills and sparking a deep love for craft. For eight years he worked as an artisan all around the world, including a long stint as a carpenter for a boat-building company in Antigua. Upon returning to South Africa, he opened a small design and manufacturing studio that provided custom interiors and furniture installations for clients in the commercial sector. Jesse’s work for Southern Guild is the outcome of a great deal of experimentation with open-cast smelting. He favours exposing and highlighting the organic nature of his mediums – manipulating them to expose the contrast between the material itself and the man-made processes that form them into collectible furniture. He sources his materials himself, visiting local quarries to select a piece of Malmesbury slate or granite – the character of which dictates his final design. Every new project sees him taking on a new design challenge and adding to his repertoire of skills. Jesse has exhibited regularly with Southern Guild since 2016, when his Lunar table – a tabletop of recycled aluminium open-cast onto a single block of slate – was selected for A New Wave, a group show of emerging South African designers. His work has been presented at Design Miami, Christie’s First Open Design Auction and The Salon Art & Design in New York.

About The Maker

Southern Guild

View Profile
Southern Guild has spearheaded the high-end design category in Africa, propelling its artist-designers to make spirited, challenging and complex work. Its highly curated exhibitions have redefined global perceptions of African design and escalated its value on the international market. Since being founded in 2008 as the sole gallery representing locally made limited-edition design, Southern Guild has birthed a new category for artists and designers in South Africa. In 2011 it became the first African gallery to present at Design Miami, and in 2015 it was the first to be featured at Christie’s London’s annual design auction. The gallery shows regularly at Design Miami in Basel and the US, at Design Days Dubai and the Collective Design Fair in New York, resulting in sales to leading architects, top collectors and respected museums. It has had work from its collections included in Vitra Design Museum’s “Making Africa” exhibition and “Beauty–Cooper Hewitt Design Triennial” at the Cooper Hewitt, Smithsonian Design Museum. Against the backdrop of a design industry that is still fairly young, Southern Guild gives designers a platform to reimagine what is possible. Founders Trevyn and Julian McGowan are embedded in the South African cultural landscape and play integral roles in guiding, advising and mentoring designers.
