Now Reading: Techno-crafted Design Objects By Julian Mayor
Written 5 months ago by
Julian Mayor, an artist and a designer based in East London, creates sculptural and creative objects that are inspired by craft making and computer possibilities.
The artist’s experimentation with new techniques and materials such as mirror polished stainless steel and carbon fiber is pushing the limits and raising the standards of industrial design. The result is delicate and lightweight looking design pieces.
While most of the objects are developed on a computer and with scale models, Mayor’s work always leaves space for fun and imagination, playing with viewers’ perception of its forms.
The designer’s forward-thinking project ideas are built on the contrast between practicality and irrationality that comes from the use of the technology and hand-made skills.
