London design festival 2019
"A group show that presents the work of five emerging designers, who reflect on how industrial processes and manufactured objects can imitate, adapt or modify the rules of growth and form that shape the natural world."
I exhibited "Hoop', 'Mesh' and 'Pinn' a trio of plant units that took their inspiration and form from the tree trunk. Pinn is a vertical green house designed to protect and nurture young growth, much like the leaves of a tree. Hoop looked at the geometrical nature of the trunk and how it supports a diverse array of life. Whilst Mesh wondered what about those that have no trunk? How does something hang with support, it doesn't, it would have to crawl or climb, mesh therefore provides a trunk to those plants that like to droop.
Lastly I designed some organic glasswork that cultivates the propagation of herbs and cuttings, allowing the units to act as one, a cyclical support structure for all stages of plant growth.
