Designer: Ross Lovegrove
Born in Wales in 1958, Ross Lovegrove began in the Eighties to work as a designer for Frog Design elaborating projects for Sony and Apple. After a time spent in France as a consultant for Knoll International, he came back to London and started working for Cappellini, Driade, Moroso, Olympus, Luceplan; some of the projects done for them are now part of the permanent collections of the Moma of New York and of the Design Museum of London. Lovegrove has the ability to seduce with appealing fluid shapes, persuasive technology, rich and beautiful colours and materials. He is inspired by natural world forms, but he also deeply cares of materials, not forgetting their eco-compatibility, in a skillful synthesis of form and function.
