Tint Lamp by Magnus Pettersen

London-based designer Magnus Pettersen makes his debut at 100%Design with 100% Norway with the Tint lamp. “For the lamp I am mixing two materials which are mainly associated with architecture; glass and concrete,” explains Magnus. “Using black concrete and a warm coloured glass, transform the hard materials into an object which suits an interior environment.”

Magnus is from Sarpsborg outside Oslo. He studied Product & Furniture Design at Kingston University and then went on to do an MA in Industrial Design at Central Saint Martins. He won a D&AD Student Award in 2008 and since graduating three years ago, he has been working as a freelance product designer for various design studios in London. Magnus started designing his own products in 2010.

Roman Ondåk – Measuring the Universe

Whilst on a recent break in Cornwall I happened upon an exhibition at the Tate gallery in St Ives. One of the exhibits was this: Measuring the
Universe by Roman Ondåk.

The idea is you walk into a white room and get your height measured on the wall. Your name is added and the date too.The exhibition began in May with an empty room and a few members of staff armed with pens. Almost 4 months and tens of thousands of names later the
wall is full.

My name is in there somewhere, although due to being average height I lost it soon after it had been added such was the volume of other names. The exhibition runs till 25th September. Go and see it. And be part of it too.

Adrienne Chinn answers Despoke Questions

Adrienne Chinn will be exhibiting their new range of Urban London wallpapers, fabrics, rugs and accessories on stand X62 at 100% Futures. Below she answer’s some questions from Despoke.

What made you want to become a designer?
I grew up in the fantastic energy of the 1960s, where I rode a Banana bike, wore white patent leather pixie boots with pink and white polka dot flamenco flair trousers, listened to The Beatles on the radio, and lived in a new-build split-level open-plan bungalow with my parents, brothers and sisters. Montreal in the 1960s was a swinging, cosmopolitan city that embraced this new stream-lined design and architecture.

I remember the grass-cloth walls, the glass and brass furniture, the Tulip chairs that I quickly discovered tipped over when you leant back in them. I was impressed by a neighbour’s synthetic white Christmas tree done up in sapphire blue balls, with blue and silver gifts under the tree. I was only a kid, and it was quite a number of years later than I became a designer, but the seeds were sewn during those early years.

“As a designer I always try to be innovative, but I might be a bit old fashioned in my thoughts of design,” says Martin Solem who’s currently studying in Copenhagen, Denmark. “For me, a product has to be realistic and useful to be called good design. What I try to do is to combine these basic thoughts with new innovative ideas.”

Whilst studying furniture making, Martin got a serious back injury which forced him to stop his studies. Determined to pursue a career in designed, he was accepted at the Bergen National Academy of Arts before continuing his design Bachelor at The Danish Design School in Copenhagen.
