Jason Miller received his MFA in painting from the New York Academy of Art. Shortly thereafter, while painting still lifes of personal household effects, he realized his deeper interest lay in the objects themselves-tables, dishes, appliances-rather than in their pictorial representations. Permanently shelving his paints, he began working in the studios of Jeff Koons and Karim Rashid before founding his own studio in 2001. He currently lives and works in Brooklyn, where he is part of a burgeoning design community inspired by the area's industrial history. Jason Miller is the founder and current director of the powerhouse lighting company Roll&Hill. His work has been on view at the Cooper-Hewitt National Design Museum and is in the Permanent Collection of the Museum of Arts and Design in New York.
