Callum Pincombe showcases his slice table at Green Grads, a platform for emerging designers who are working sustainably and tackling eco-issues. The exhibition takes place 24-25 Sept.
Date: 20 September 2022
Green Grads is an initiative to platform designers who are meeting head-on the world's most pressing eco-issues such as sustainability, climate crisis, circular production, waste and pollution, depletion of resources, bio-diversity and much more.
The initiative also serves to highlight a return to nature and craft, and the power and desirability of local materials and strengthened communities.
Callum Pincombe will be showcasing his remarkable 'slice table', which has a top made of slices of timber from a single log.
Founder and curator of Green Grads, Barbara Chandler, said "Our show is an inarguable double whammy: we deliver support for new designers and support for the environment at one and the same time…through engaging content created and exhibited by the cream of recent graduates from British universities."
She adds: "We are not saying that all the projects and ideas we show will be commercially viable, or indeed possible right now in the 'real world' but they are seeds to nurture and grow, the results of in-depth research and dedicated hours in studios and workshops. Their inventors are the talent we so sorely need to help solve our eco-crises."
This is the second edition of Green Grads at Planted at Samsung which last year attracted around 2,000 visitors over a single weekend. Green Grads 2022 will introduce around 50 new graduates from Universities and Colleges all over the UK.
They have been carefully chosen by Barbara Chandler, who's explored degree shows from Falmouth to Manchester, then criss-crossed London, and practically pitched tent at the two editions of the New Designers shows this summer.
