'Surfing the Crash' to Milan
The Cass BA Furniture and Product Design students from the studio 'Surfing the Crash' led by William Warren have taken their work to the world's biggest and most important exhibition of contemporary furniture design, the 'Salone Internazionale del Mobile'.
Showing with UK- based Designers' Block, seen here setting up their stand are Michele del Forno, Mona Tripp. Alex Mueller and Mihaela Ogarca with a selection of furniture showing the wide range of types and techniques designed and made by the students, from seating to storage and lighting. Many of the pieces designed in the studio this year explore contemporary applications for traditional materials and techniques, or inventive and alternative uses of technology. Among the designs shown are products made from fallen leaves, lighting made from plywood made flexible by laser etching and furniture intended to train children to help keep their homes tidy.
Many other students will shortly be joining them in Milan on their studio trip to see and experience the cutting edge design and the business of international furniture design and manufacture.
