Johnny Egg is the King of Flock, flocked furniture, that is. Now you may think flocking is old hat, but I guarantee you, that you’ve never seen anything like Johnny’s fabulous creations. He flocks everything from baroque looking clocks to phones, to lamps, chandeliers and tables. They’re bold and they’re fun to touch. In short, flocking beautiful! What more could you ask for?
Johnny lives and works in Essex, England. He’s been featured in all sorts of magazines, and I feel very honored to have had the pleasure of being able to get inside that creative head of his for a few minutes. Below are the answers to a few of my burning questions.
PH: What inspires you most right now?
I’d say the thing that always inspires me is fashion. I get ideas from the colours & textures of the materials that fashion designers use.
If you could look in any designer’s sketch book, who’s would it be and why?
Its always been Jeff Koons but now that Jean Paul Gaultier has moved into furniture . . . .
Pet peeves that’s a long list, but it all comes down to poor workmanship. If you do something do it well, take pride in your work.
Good advice no matter what you do. What is your most cherished home accessory or of piece of furniture?
I don’t, certain aspects of life go on hold. Fortunately I have a few good people around who help out and are understanding.
What do you do to overcome creative blocks?
The first tool in the list might seem a bit odd, but its my car, as that’s when I daydream my designs into reality. I love a traffic jam. The next would be a pencil and finally my cnc machine that enables me to make prototypes in half the time.
