Today we received our first ContemporaryLab goody – the gorgeous Savoye Chair. Below you can see a couple of snaps we took next to our little ContemporaryLab mascot – Moomin.
In the new shade of grey, we are over the moon with our lovely chair. Soon to come is also a Carre Coffee Table with an Oak frame to match our sofa legs. Pictured below is the Carre Coffee Table in Ash.
Exciting stuff – stay tuned for more snaps of the ContemporaryLab products in situ!
Fourth Interview With A Brighton University Design Graduate: Jessica Hung
CL: How would you introduce yourself to our readers?
I am Jessica. I am a very ‘hands on’ designer, working across a variety of materials and design projects.
CL: Can you talk a little about your discovered design style from studying at university?
Most of my work is about engaging with other people. Whether its with people using and viewing my product creating a stimulating atmosphere, or bringing people together to use my product collectively.
I would also describe my work as very ‘structured’ and I like working with ‘form’ and ‘construction’ within my design.
CL: What part of the design process excites you the most?
I love discussing new concepts with others, thrashing out ideas and design; creating a buzz around the project.
I also enjoy making things well and I like it when they function efficiently.
CL: What are your values and ethics when it comes to designing?
I believe design is at its best when it involves or benefits people’s lives; this can be within function or aesthetic. When a product is made to use or keep it is a sign of a good design. When a product has a fault or aggravates the user it means there is room for improvement.
CL: If you weren’t a designer what would you have liked to be?
An event planner! And a part time hand model.
CL: What do you plan to do once you graduate?
I will be looking for work within the design industry that engages with other people. Working with function, construction and form. I hope!
CL: Where do you see yourself in 2 years?
Well, I hope I have work and build up many making and design skills. Selling my own designs, working in different companies, working in other countries. Who knows!
