Ross Lovegrove

Ross Lovegrove is a designer and visionary whose work is considered to be at the very apex of stimulating a profound change in the physicality of our three dimensional world. Inspired by the logic and beauty of nature, his designs possess a trinity between technology, material science and intelligent organic form, creating what many industrial leaders see as the new aesthetic expression for the 21st Century. A deeply human and resourceful approach is embedded in his designs, which projects an optimism and innovative vitality in everything he touches from cameras to cars to trains, aviation and architecture. In the early 80’s, he worked as a designer for Frog Design in West Germany on projects such as the Walkman for Sony, computers for Apple; later he moved to Paris as a consultant to Knoll International, becoming the author of the highly successful Alessandri Office System. Along with Jean Nouvel and Phillipe Stark, he was invited to join the Atelier de Nimes consulting for clients such as Cacharel, Louis Vuitton, Hermès  and Dupont. Returning to London in 1986 he has completed projects for amongst others Airbus Industries, Kartell, Ceccotti, Cappellini, Idee, Moroso, Luceplan, Driade, Peugeot, Apple, Issey Miyake, Vitra, Motorola, Biomega, LVMH, Yamagiwa Corporation, Tag Heuer, Hackman, Alias, Herman Miller, Renault, Artemide, Japan Airlines and Toyo Ito Architects in Japan.
