Jason Radcliffe is a steel furniture designer from Cleveland’s Westside.
You might think he was born for this; he was raised around his father’s fabrication shop and grew up playing with Legos and building models before he went to school for mechanical CAD. While working for his father’s business as an industrial designer, designing and building industrial process equipment, he found himself building things for his home and friends. Then in 2005, a friend who worked for a small furniture store asked him to make custom pieces for their clients. 44 Steel was born.
44 Steel is driven by Jason’s industrial influences. His influences are late 18th and early 19th century industrial revolution era machinery – durable and innovative products that were known for their strength and quality. He works in stainless steel, aluminum, and wood, but raw steel and the many colors, patterns, and textures you can create with it are his specialty. Using the same tools he uses in his industrial job, he creates original pieces of furniture for home and commercial spaces.
