Design Council Ones to Watch

8th February 2015

The Design Council have announced the 70 designers who they think will impact future British design.

Chosen from hundreds of designers, the final 70 are chosen for their outstanding design ambitions, drive to push the boundaries of design and for their future impact on British design.

Divided into 6 categories: Healthier and Happier, Material World, Social Impact, Living in the city, Rethinking reality and Everyday living it is wonderful to see many of the designers I have profiled on this blog or on Unique Style Platform or my brilliant students!

Ofcourse the most interesting section is Material World where the brilliant Marlene Huissoud with her From Insects project utilising propolis from bees is nominaated as well as Lucy Libotte who explores dust as a material for glazing ceramics who are both graduates from Materials Futures at CSM, whilst Wael Saeiby who re works plastic bags into beautiful vases and Effie Koukia with her edible ink for safe graffiti and printing push the boundaries of materiality.

Also in this category is a project that I hadn't seen before from Fernando Laposse Madero who is a material alchemist who experiments with sugar to resemble glass. Creating cocktail glasses, the drinks become sweeter as time passes.

Good luck to them all

About


I use this blog as a notebook of inspirations – I post things I see and like and thoughts of mine. I don't revolve around a singular topic and neither does this blog. Everything and anything is relevant
