DESIGNTALKS 08 | OPEN LECTURE BY ROSS LOVEGROVE ON JULY 2ND

DesignTalks 08 meets Ross Lovegrove on Wednesday, July 2nd at 18.30. The conference will be open to the general public.

Ross Lovegrove defines himself an evolutionary biologist creating forms more than a designer. His work relates to nature in an evolutionary sense as he’s deeply concerned with reduction. The result is an organic yet impressive essentialism which means using nothing more – nothing less than is needed.

Next Wednesday, July 2nd at 18.30, DesignTalks 08 meets Ross Lovegrove. The conference at SPD will be open to the general public with an introduction by Cristina Morozzi. Lovegrove is also leading the first of the four one-week workshops run by SPD as part of its Summer School programme.

Welsh-born, Ross Lovegrove is truly a pioneer of industrial design. His astonishing pieces are the result of an ongoing quest in the potential offered by technologies. Lovegrove blends this orientation towards technological innovation with an interest in the natural world as a permanent source of inspiration. He has worked for clients as varied as Apple, Cappellini, Moroso, Issey Miyake and Airbus. His work has been exhibited at MoMA in New York, the Pompidou Centre in Paris and the Design Museum in London.
