Bridgette Buckley Bertran
Bridgette is an award-winning furniture designer and maker, based in Chicago, IL. Her sensibilities are deeply rooted in Scandinavian culture and aesthetic which she adopted after studying, living and working there. She honors craft, respects material, and believes the objects we surround ourselves with should bring joy, facilitate social connection, and bring about body awareness.
Most recently Bridgette held the position of Senior Designer in the Furniture Design Studio of HOLLY HUNT. There she designed and developed furniture for the in-house collection HOLLY HUNT STUDIO, and acted as project manager with a focus on upholstery production, for a large scale new introduction, HOLLY HUNT OUTDOOR, which launched in December 2016. She also celebrated the 10 year anniversary of the successful Siren Dining Chair which she designed between 2004 and 2007.
