Fred Hogg

Through my practice, I seek to explore the juxtaposition of materials to design and create furniture suited for interactive commercial settings. I enjoy both the design and making process, where I strive to fully understand the manufacturing techniques and assembly of my products. I don’t like to hide the use of fixtures in my designs, and rather look to build a narrative through the products construction.

By considering how an element of customisation can be implemented into my finished products, be it use of material or finish. I want my designs to stand out, but also be in a position to compliment an interior colour scheme, whilst considering budgetary requirements, accommodating to both my clients wants and needs.

Ex

Following a set brief to produce a pendant light, from flat sheet material, I focused on how the pendant would be viewed from any possible angle. Ex hosts a visual exploitation of the linear end grain, of its plywood frame, where vertices collide. With a choice of spray finishes and ability to be easily scaled for small and larger interiors, Ex could prove to be a successful contract piece.
