Natural Factory

Nature Factory is a new approach to manufacturing being a small scale mobile factory. It is able to with the help of the general public extract from its surroundings, the beach in this instance, raw resources to produce a mouldable material that can be used to make furniture for the beach.
In doing so it looks to question the culturally and contexturally specific way that we view materials. Why do we anthropomorphise and add emotive qualities to some? Categorising them into binary opposites, natural and artificial? As all materials are from the same source, the environment, why are some more emotive or valuable than others? If we were to once again link the source and the material, how would we perceive them?
Through linking the the provenance of materials to objects and demystifying the manufacturing process I am looking to reawaken a consciousness towards Nature and the environment.
This is further reinforced through the designed outcomes of this factory. This furniture forms a new continuous cycle with the environment. Fluctuating between the world of Man-made and Natural by responding to the ebbing and flowing of the tide.

I took this images years ago. As a colleague said to me "If Miralles had not die, he would have been the LeCorbusier of our times"

Studio Toogood

Who said that styling is also related with fashion design? I knew about
Studio Toogood after working at Tom Dixon Studio when I looked at the credits from the photo-shoot of the products for the catalogue and the press launch. Faye Toogood is an interior designer, whose knowledge in design has taken her into the development of her first product design.

Studio Toogood designs, directs and executes interiors and environments from concept through to creation. Offering a full creative direction and interior design service, the Studio’s projects range from the two-dimensional page to the three-dimensional space, and from the real to the conceptual.

Edward Burtynsky

Industrial Beauty

The bulk of Burtynsky's exhibited photography was taken with a large format field camera on large 4x5-inch sheet film and developed into high-resolution, large-dimension prints (of approximately 50x60 inches). He often positions himself to get a high-vantage over the landscape using elevated platforms, the natural topography, and on occasion helicopters. Burtynsky describes the act of taking a photograph in terms of "The Contemplated Moment", evoking "The Decisive Moment" of Henri Cartier-Bresson.

Andy Warhol´s Studio

New York City studio from 1962 to 1968, although his later studios were known as The Factory as well. The Factory was located on the fifth floor at 231 East 47th Street, in Midtown Manhattan. The rent was "only about one hundred dollars a year". The building no longer exists.
