Cass furniture alumnus Moe Redish named as one of London’s most influential people in Evening Standard.
Date: 22 October 2019
Moe Redish, a 2018 graduate of Furniture and Product Design BA (Hons) at The Cass has been included in the ’25 future faces 25 and under’ category of the Evening Standard’s The Progress 1000, a list of London’s most influential people in 2019.
We asked Moe, whose work fuses traditional joinery and contemporary techniques, about his experiences since graduation and it became clear why he had made the list:
“Life since graduating has been an extremely busy but positive time. September 2018 saw my first product being launched into production with contemporary furniture collective Joined + Jointed and a nomination for 100% Forward which highlighted emerging design talents, each championed by a designer who launched their career at 100% Design.
The months following were spent on an internship in Seville, Spain working with art and design studio Todomuta, before heading back to London to launch my business making free standing furniture and pursuing the world of designing for manufacture. The past two months have been spent exhibiting during London Design Festival and The Furniture Makers Company’s Young Furniture Makers exhibition, while working on various projects and commissions for private clients and larger companies such as the V&A. Exhibiting at the Young Furniture Makers exhibition and my work with the V&A led on to me being named as one of Evening Standards Progress 1000, 25 future faces under 25, an amazing feature that has since helped me focus on upcoming projects and ideas.”
Moe is not the only London Metropolitan University connection with the Progress 1000 list. Caruso St John, the practice led by Architecture Professor Peter St John with Adam Caruso features in the Architecture category and the University’s Vice Chancellor Lynn Dobbs is praised for her activism.
