BA (Hons) Furniture and Product Design
Concept and narrative provide a strong foundation for all my design work, promoting product longevity through emotional attachment.
My projects are led by exploration of materials and processes, providing striking visuals that encourage both physical and visual interaction.
The value of wool has dropped by 93% since the 90s. This is because of increased dependency on synthetics across all industries, and a lack of education regarding the benefits of the fibre.
Floc encourages the (re)use of wool as a hyper-sustainable material through exploitation of the spinning process, locality, and transparency. By presenting wool in an innovative way, this statement lighting aims to add value to the fibre and promote its use to revive the 'forgotten' wool industry.
Designed for Italian furniture company, Magis, T. aims to increase product longevity through emotional durability, encouraging physical interaction between users by re-thinking the ritual of tea drinking.
Inspired by totemic structures, when not in use T. provides a sculptural aesthetic. The stacked vessels are then disassembled by the users to allow the product to function as a tea set. The use of solid oak presents tableware in an unconventional and sustainable way, whilst exploiting the beauty of the material and its process of manufacture.
