Louisa Guinness – Foliates Collection

The Foliates collection was designed by Lovegrove for Louisa Guinness Gallery and launched at Art Basel Miami in December 2013. Each ring in the series has been digitally designed and manufactured using the very latest in 3D printing technology using 18ct gold.

The term Foliates is derived from the botanical world of plants. It relates to leaves and leaf structures, their highly evolved shapes that are there to capture sunlight and rain.

These rings and this collection appear is as if the very last virgin leaves of a tree or plant have unfurled from ones hand so that there is a relationship between the finger and the leaf, the gold appearing from the delicate void that I find so feminine and sensual and unattended.

They sit lightly, exploring the dynamics of space and the digital realm converging organic design with the nature of naturalness that underlines my life’s commitment to sourcing the trinity that can exist so succinctly when technology, materials and form converge in the advanced times in which we live.

The Foliate rings are part of a limited edition collection and can purchased  directly through Louisa Guinness Gallery  http://www.louisaguinnessgallery.com/home/



Gingko in the Permanent Collection at the Centre Pompidou

Gingko carbon LOVEGROVE

We are pleased to announce that Ross’ Gingko Carbon Table has been selected for inclusion in the permanent collection of Design and Architecture at The Centre Pompidiou in Paris.
The work is a seminal piece in Ross’ creative process representing the trinity of material, technology and form that is core to his exchange between Design and Art.
The table is a double skin carbon assembly bonded around a polyurethane inner moulding  which is unique in that most carbon skins are single sided. The resulting piece conforms to what he describes as single surface deformation using creasing strategies to generate a structure which represents the way that nature seeks out purity and economics to achieve balance and integrity around evolutionary principles of holistic form creation.
