Today we’re focusing our attention on another current designer contributing to modern design furniture: Welsh industrial designer Ross Lovegrove’s work is defined by his seamless fusion of technology, intelligent organic form, and materials science, collectively earning him numerous accolades and praise as the new aesthetic expression for the 21st Century. His work has been featured at the Guggenheim Museum and the Museum of Modern Art in New York and is also part of the permanent collection of various design museums.
Ross Lovegrove was born in 1958 in Cardiff, Wales. He went on to study at what’s now called the Manchester Metropolitan University (formerly known as Manchester Polytechnic) where he obtained his First Class BA in Industrial Design in 1980. Continuing his studies at the Royal College of Art in London, Lovegrove graduated with a Master of Design in 1983.
During the 1980s Lovegrove worked as a designer for Frog Design in West Germany, contributing his touch to many notable electronics including the Sony Walkman and Apple computers. Lovegrove then moved to Paris and began working as a consultant for the Knoll International design firm. Knoll is responsible for manufacturing works by some of the most acclaimed names in modern home furniture like Eero Saarinen, Harry Bertoia, and more.
