Growing Material Solutions

We’ve been exploring just what it means to “Reach Carbon Zero” within the built environment, which by and large means a reassessment of the materials we use and the processes involved in producing them. There has undoubtedly been a move toward more sustainable practices as well as connecting more directly with nature – or at… Read More >

Materials for a Lighter Future

Milan Design Week may be behind us now, but the impact of the exhibitions, talks, events and performances can still be felt. Indeed, having had the show back to full strength once again highlights the magnitude of the reverberations it creates within the world of design, and beyond. A series of concurrent themes were at… Read More >

A conversation between: Jim Biddulph & Bryan Oknyansky, Dexter Moren Associates

Not many of us start on our career paths before even completing our higher education, let alone starting it. That’s certainly something you’d say for the notoriously rigorous and involved discipline of architecture. Then again, there probably aren’t too many architects out there who can say that they’re award winning footwear designers either. But Bryan… Read More >

Our Time on Earth

The 24-hour clock analogy, which states that if the world were formed at midnight, with the present moment being 24 hours on, then humans have been around since 11:59:59pm, may not be a new one, but its poignancy never really fades. As a species, we indeed are but a blip in the history of the… Read More >

A Promotion for Reduction

As we recently began exploring, the journey to “net zero” is a complicated but essential one, and one that encompasses many angles, not just decarbonising. Whilst not entirely to blame for the existing issues, as an industry, design must play a key role in altering the ways in which we manufacture, transport, apply and use… Read More >

Reconnecting with texture

As we reached the end of 2020, clinging on to the hope that 2021 will signal a pivot towards a pandemic-free world, it seems apposite to consider tactility, although perhaps ‘re-consider’ is more appropriate? Any way you slice it, last year has seen a sharp reduction in our physical contact with our surroundings as well… Read More >

There have been countless material innovations over the past decade, with big brands, independent design studios, graduates and students all getting in on the act. The desire to create new, never-seen-before materials has gone hand in hand with the burgeoning of both industry-focused material libraries and universally available social media platforms, which offer the opportunity… Read More >

Jim Biddulph & Oliver Heath in Conversation

Over the past few years, there has been a steady rise in awareness of Biophilic Design principles and all their virtues. This has unfolded hand-in-hand with the term “wellbeing” going mainstream. The two are intertwined and offer designers guidance well beyond aesthetics and pure functionality alone. But will Biophilia only ever remain in the commercial… Read More >

One Year In with Jim Biddulph

Whilst New Designers celebrates those who have very recently graduated from their creative degree course, the show also houses One Year In; an exhibition of some of last years highlights and one’s to watch.
