    Design Masterclass & Interview With The One And Only PATRICIA URQUIOLA!

    21st November

    I had the great privilege of being invited to attend Patricia Urquiola’s exclusive master class earlier this week, as part of Space Furniture’s 20th birthday celebrations. The three hour design ‘workshop’ explored ideas through the hands-on making, based on the way Patricia’s own studio works in Milan. The class was a bit like play-school for grown-up designers – colourful, exploratory and times almost silly, but so friggin fun and liberating. In truth, most of us who were there would have been happy digging trenches if it meant spending some time alongside one of the world’s brightest design stars. There are simply no words to describe how extraordinary this woman is. I bow to her, respect and admire her to the moon and back, with intensity only those closest to me can comprehend. Despite her worldwide superstardom, I am happy to report that Patricia is as humble, grounded, real and generous in person, just like one would expect from her work. After the workshop, I was extremely lucky to have Patricia all to myself for my first ever one-on-one, proper grown-up “real life” interview…

    Design Installations & Other Special Moments During Salone del Mobile // Milan 2013.

    17th May

    Today I wanted to chat to you about some of the wonderful moments and installations that took place during the Milan Design Week. As you’ve probably gathered, an overwhelming amount of things happens in Milan during the Design Week. When compared to previous years, 2013 was definitely quieter and more modest due to the grim state of European (and global) economy. Having said this, there was still plenty to see and do. Let’s dive in…

    Louis Vuitton’s Objets Nomades at Design Miami 2012.

    12th December

    What could one expect from a partnership between luxury French fashion house Louis Vuitton and a bunch of blue chip designers? Nothing other than the ultimate killer combination of extreme love variety! Launched at the recent Design Miami, “Objets Nomades” is a collection of 16-piece personal and travel accessories designed by 11 notable designers – think Fernando and Humberto Campana, Patricia Urquiola, Maarten Baas, Christian Liaigre and Oki Sato of Nendo amongst others.
