Today, we present you the nominees for rising talents of M&O Paris 2017, nominated by six renowned designers. They call them “The most promising talents from the United Kingdom” and why United Kingdom? Because UK has the largest interior design sector in Europe and the second largest in the world.
1. Ilse Crawford’s nominee Marcin Rusak
Marcin Rusak born in 1987 in Warsaw, Poland, but lives and works in London. He studies contemporary patterns of consumption, industry methods of manipulation, and the complicated systems we support. His work is the intersection of value, ephemerality and aesthetics, creating works that asks questions, references history and proposes possible future scenarios, utilizing the power of materials, volume and form that he moves fluidly from decorative art objects to sculptures, two dimensional work and back again each time with a story as his guide.
2. Sir Paul Smith’s nominee John Booth
John Booth wanted to be a textile designer; he was studying Fashion Print at Central St Martins when he realized he could channel his “interest in fashion and textiles through his passion for drawing”. Whether he is designing ceramic objects, textile prints or doing fashion illustrations, John Booth follows the same creative path: his work is instantaneous, always sporting strong, often primary colours and is never conceptual or conceptualized.
3. Ross Lovegrove’s nominee Giles Miller
Giles Miller is a composer of materials. He specialises in the development of truly innovative surface, material and sculptural works. With focuses on light, reflection, texture and the manipulation of these elements, Giles Miller creates conceptually subtle yet beautifully functional artworks.
4. Jay Osgerby’s nominee Sebastian Cox
Sebastian Cox grew up surrounded by woods and raised by a father whose profession was to restore timber-framed buildings. Later, it seemed natural to him to study Furniture at Lincoln University, followed by an MA in Design. For this British craftsman and designer, designing and making are the two faces of his trade. He use traditional techniques and at the same time incorporate a contemporary aesthetic, thta appeals to modern homes.
5. Nigel Coates’ nominee Studio Swine
Japanese architect Azusa Murakami and British artist Alexander Groves are the Studio SWINE. Obsessed with materials, travelling the world from South America to some uninhabited South Pacific parts or to the Shandong province of China, they consider design as “an agent for change”, willing to change the perception of materials by turning waste into luxury.
