Collections of students from the highest-rated artistic colleges in Great Britain have come together to create an innovative display of eco-friendly designs. Respective students have already graduated from their programs, with this event marking their first professional showcasing’s. Central Saint Martin’s will govern over this event, which will see numerous well-established designs and functioning websites publicly released. This information was confirmed by Jeremy Till, the Head of the Central Saint Martins.
When questioned on this design expo, Jeremy Till noted that these recent graduates would live in a world far different than anybody could anticipate. It was expressed that there’s a climate emergency and that products must be designed to assist with these growing economic/social issues. That’s what prompted Jeremy Till to channel students to develop products for these apparent problems.
This resulted in the Central Saint Martins Institution to provide graduated students with eco-friendly materials, which were used towards eliminating global pollution and increase universal healthcare. Products expected to appear to include new filtration systems, enhanced fuel consumption methods, cancer-relieving products and human rehabilitation services. It should be noted that this Graduate Degree Show saw a substantial crowd of supporters in Granary Square, King’s Cross.
The Show’s Products Unveiled on January 15th
The 1st graduate student that shocked judges and visitors was Nathalie Spencer. She won the LVMH Green Trail Award, which was acquired for her wool-like fibres made from wasted pineapple. She also had a second product which made coffee from dandelion roots, allowing for a higher-tank of energy with a more relaxing flavour profile. When looking at the showcases held on the upper levels of Central Saint Martins School of Learning, various products revolving around furniture and ceramics were displayed. Most of these products infused various plant-based plastics, allowing for unique shapes and explosive patterns. Michael Bean won the CSM Furniture Design Award for his respective accomplishments.
One of the products displayed by Michael Bean was an oddly shaped cupboard, which contained numerous compartments that were concealed. This extended to a living room table, which was anchored by discarded stone. His table comprised re-used glass, metal tubing and repurposed plastics for a unique design. This was more of an art piece than it was a viable item. However, Michael Bean was ultimately outpaced for awards by Anton Mikkonen. He acquired several awards for his furniture made of discarded timber from a 100-year-old CNC Machine. It showed that old technologies could be repurposed in the modern era.
