  • Ben Orson
    Managing Director, London
    The power of an idea to take on a life of its own still astonishes me. As a designer, my responsibility is to help bring those ideas into being, and my privilege is to watch them change the world.

    Ben joined JPA Design in 2002 and recently returned to the London office as Managing Director. Ben is now intent on realising JPA’s aspirations for development and growth.

    Ben’s return to the company in 2013 followed a three-year period as Design Director with Zodiac Aerospace, one of the world’s leading aircraft interior equipment manufacturers. In his time at Zodiac he established a world-class industrial design facility in California which developed a number of the company’s most important products and innovative seating concepts. Ben has been named as inventor on seven patents for aviation IP and is a regular speaker at events such as Skift, Aircraft Interiors Expo and Future Travel Experience.
