Sir John Soane’s Museum has revealed the winners of The Digital Soane competition organised in collaboration with the Royal College of Art, and supported by the Jerwood Charitable Foundation. An exhibition of all the designs will run at the Soane until 22nd November.
The winning designs are by Michael Hurley, Hannah Louise Pittman, Haidée Drew, Molly Perrin, Max Warren, Maria Militsi and design duo Schram & Sandhu. They were each selected by an expert panel of judges for their imaginative approach to the brief, and innovative reinterpretation of traditional techniques.
A bust of Sir John Soane, which holds court in the Museum’s Dome Area has been shattered into pieces and used as the starting point for a new object designed by RCA Jewellery & Metal graduates through the programme’s ‘Thinking Digital’ initiative. This treasured 19th Century marble piece hasn’t been physically broken but fragmented using the latest 3D scanning technology.
