Miles Jaffe is an industrial designer, artist, author and satirist working out of a studio and prototype shop in Bridgehampton, New York.

Raised in his father's architectural office from an early age, Miles worked both drafting tables and construction sites as a youth. After studying industrial design at Rhode Island School of Design, he returned to Bridgehampton to work with his father, architect Norman Jaffe. By the mid 1980’s Miles was designing and building his own architectural and furniture projects while continuing to consult with his father, receiving state and national recognition for work on Gates of the Grove Synagogue in East Hampton.

After his father´s death, Miles spent several years as an apprentice in traditional Japanese construction under Master Builder Jokan Ohama. Today his firm specializes in the design and execution of a wide range of creative projects ranging from architecture and furniture to new media. His satirical book The Hamptons Dictionary has been featured in global media including BBC World News.
