Materials are the heart of the product and are usually the starting point of many of my designs. Some of my products are by-products of the creative exploration of a new material. Materials are the bread and butter of any designer and significantly influence the products style and ethos.
I am therefore always seeking out new material technologies or reliable sources of 2nd generation materials that can be re-use and brought back to life. Continued research of new and old materials and exploring ways to celebrate them in a functional object is something I dedicate a lot of time to.
Over the past few years I have been researching and building a library specifically focused on sustainable, green, natural, renewable, recyclable materials. I am now putting all this online, with images, specifications and personal notes to share. Enjoy and I hope it inspires.
