Kate Scarlet McCormack

Multidisciplinary designer, using colour as an important presence in my designs, as well as a narrative which ultimately supports its existence. My approach to design consists of investigations, using visual and physical research from various creative and abstract sources. For me working three-dimensionally is an invaluable tool to aid in the process of discovery, which design facilitates. 



Experience is instrumental in maturing as a designer. I completed multiple internships during my placement year, adapting to working in new cities and with different creative teams. Similar to design, experience is about discovery and progression, I'm excited to join the design industry and make these new discoveries.

Wiggle

Wiggle is an 8 piece set of modular homeware, hand-cast in Jesmonite. Wiggle dissects the relationships we have with our objects, how we interact with them, and in turn how they interact with each other, within the context of styling and organising our objects.

Each object shares the same wiggle face as well as “smooth” faces, inviting the user to create their own landscapes and decide how each object interacts with one another. Function follows form, as the non-descriptive objects allow the user to decide its purpose and place within the home.

Cart

The Cart collection is a live project with contract furniture company VG&P. Designed with interior designers/architects in mind, the collection offers modularity for commercial spaces. The collection includes stools offered in two heights, these wire bodies are inspired by shopping trolleys and can be dressed like mannequins with the choice of the ZIP or CLIP garment. While working alone as storage, a timber top may be added for surface and the garments may be zipped or clipped on for soft seating, with a padded top.

Designed with VG&P’s main clients in mind, that being Architects and Interior Designers who desire modularity and customisation for their commercial interior projects. Cart investigated the interpretation of modularity, using inspiration from utility fixtures used in functional clothing and applying the instinctive discipline of dressing, to modular contract furniture. The scale of modularity is fixed but flexible, meaning the functional clothing is decided on by the clients and set within the space. They are then flexible for the owner of the space to alter if the requirements of the space change. Need another tabletop? Simply zip the seat off and store it inside the wire body.
