Meet the Designer

“Wild Things is a collection of domestic objects that follow the principles of biophilic design, anti-design and post-disciplinary craft processes. Created in the spirit of experimentation and imagination, this work taps into the phantasmagorical properties that our everyday furniture and objects can hold, outside the constraints of modernism and mass production. Using visuals borrowed from the natural world, Wild Things examines the outcome when biophilic design is executed by hand using craft-based techniques.”
