RMIT University School of Art, the National Gallery of Victoria and Radiant Pavilion are proud to present internationally acclaimed UK designer:
Paul Cocksedge, Making UP
Friday 25 August 2017, 6.00pm
National Gallery of Victoria, Clemenger Auditorium
$35 ($28 students)
In this lecture, UK designer Paul Cocksedge will discuss the importance of an experimental, hands-on process for his studio’s work, exploring how his London workshop has been an essential part of his practice to date, and how the city’s creative spaces are at an ever-increasing premium. Cocksedge will also talk about the core principles that inform his work, including a commitment to and emphasis on detail, and the importance of diversity and fun in the design process.
Paul Cocksedge Studio was founded in 2004 by Paul Cocksedge and Joana Pinho. With a strong and dedicated team of collaborators, the Studio has won national and international acclaim for its original and innovative design, underpinned by research into the limits of technology, materials and manufacturing processes.
The key feature of the Studio’s work, in everything from product design to architectural projects, is a focus on simplicity and imagination in order to create unique people-centred designs. At the core of this focus lies an unrelenting attention to detail and a willingness to question previous assumptions about design.
The Studio’s work includes KISS for City of Milan, the Living Staircase for Ampersand in London, and Paul Cocksedge’s recent acclaimed solo exhibition at the Friedman Benda Gallery, New York.
This event will open the proceedings of Making OUT, the 17th JMGA biennial conference.
