Silo Studios Attua Aparicio & Oscar Wanless
Silo is the London based design studio formed by Attua Aparicio and Oscar Wanless. They met during the Design Products course at the Royal College of Art.
The duo is focused on study through experimentation with industrial materials and processes aiming to adapt them to a more craft approach.
Silo looks at how industry makes things, trying to find a simpler and more expressive way, seeing new potential. Hand made-high tech.
They were invited to become the first designers in residence at Jablite, the largest polystyrene factory in the UK.
Silo’s work has been exhibited at Mastering Design in MUDAC, Lausanne, Switzerland; Designs of the Year 2012 and Extraordinary Stories About Ordinary Things at the Design Museum, London. They are associated artist with Marsden Woo Gallery in London and they are part of the RCA Graduates Collective WORKS.
They were commissioned by Bloomberg as part of the initiative Waste Not Want It to create a furniture installation for their head office in London. They created a perfume bottle for the Fiorucci Art Trust. They were invited by Wallpaper* Magazine to participate in the project Wallpaper* Handmade that was exhibited during Milan Furniture Fair 2013. Selected to participate in Passionwege during Vienna Design Week teamed with Riess Enamel.
Recently, Silo has developed a range of textile moulded glassware for HAY for the WRONG FOR HAY Collection as a direct continuation of their studio practice moving into mass production.
