Make Art Practical by Charlotte Kingsnorth – Top British Industrial Designer

Good Monday dear followers,

Today we write about a creative insdustrial designer from the UK. Charlotte Kingsnorth is a Maidan Vale, London based artist with the goal to make art practical and usable. She uses her designs to narrate the world as she sees it, conjuring up thought provoking ideas which push accepted values and boundaries. Her work demonstrates her preoccupation in materiality and biomorphic forms.

 

We show you her designs:

Upholstery

Slashed

A bold slash lengthways with a knife reveals the hidden layers inside. An eruption, like a wound, changes the form in a permanent way. A new structure has been carved, which functions as a seat and ottoman.

 

Felt Up

Made from natural wool felt, ‘Felt Up’ works as an insulator from surrounding noise and hugs the occupier more snugly the further they lean back. Made simply from a single piece of thick felt folded around a steel frame.

 

At One

It narrates the bond between a person and their sofa. Together they sit as one, the flesh spills and bulges, enveloping the wooden frame as a marriage of two mediums. The new form is grotesquely beautiful.

 

Hybreed

The Hybreed collection continues to evolve from the mixture of vintage furniture frames and fleshy biomorphic forms. A mixture of instinct and the character of the original chair informs the shape of the cushioning that makes up its body. The chairs are hand sculpted and stitched, which is why every chair in the collection is one of a kind.

 

 

Lighting

Thrilly

 

Blo

A series of glass vessels and a floor lamp manifested through the observation of traditional glass blowing methods and tools. A new tool was designed, made, tested and refined which can be used to blow two air bubbles into the molten glass at once.
