Luke Jenkins merges traditional making and design sensibilities with new technologies such as laser cutting, CNC routing, and 3D printing. He graduated with a Master’s in Sustainable Design (2010) from the Design Academy Eindhoven, the Netherlands, a program with an emphasis on sustainable and humanitarian thinking. His BFA in Furniture Design (2004) from the Rhode Island School of Design focused on making and materiality.
In 2019, he opened In Bloom Studio, located in Fort Lauderdale, Florida. This design/build studio focuses on furniture design and art fabrication, with an attention to detail and a respect for material. He previously held the role of Exhibition Designer/Lead Installer at the NSU Art Museum, and taught furniture design and directed the digital fabrication labs at the Florida Atlantic University School of Architecture. His practice emphasizes materiality, sustainability, and a sense of community.
