Ross was recently filmed as part of a new 6 part series called ‘Objects of Desire’ to be aired on the Sky Arts channel later this year. The series, hosted by Mariella Frostrup, explores our intrigue and want for the most desirable objects in fashion, architecture, design and the arts.
Incorporated in the series is a charity auction, hosted by Philips de Pury. The auction included works from Zaha Hadid, Thomas Heatherwick, Jade Jagger and Peter Saville. Ross was asked to donate an object for the auction and choose his Cosmic Leaf light, designed for Italian lighting company, Artemide. The Cosmic Leaf is a fantastic example of industrial lighting design and has recently been added to the permanent collection of the Art Institute of Chicago.
On sunday, the Lovegrove Studio was a hive of activity. The picture above is of Ross with friends Greg Lynn, Lowie Vermeecsh and Moniek Bucquoye. They were here to discuss new exhibitions in Kortijk.
Lovegrove Studio is looking to hire two talented students or recent graduates to join our team.
Starting in July, the internship’s will run for 3-months. During this time the successful candidates will gain experience working in an international renowned design studio and further progress their learning and understanding within the industry.
Position 1 - Computational Designer
It is fundamental that the individual has experience in cutting edge computational software. This will include Maya mel, Processing, Grasshopper for Rhino or equivalent.
Position 2 – Alias Designer/Surface Modeler
Our approach to design is founded in complex 3D surface modeling; we are searching for someone with experience in Alias with knowledge of creating complex form beyond the use of the software tools.
The individual will be capable of manually manipulating surfaces to create organic geometry. (If possible please include work examples as wire files for review).
Candidates must have relevant educational experience in design or architecture and be able to demonstrate a strong understanding of form and detailing.
We are looking for London based candidates that have easy access to our studio in Notting Hill.
If you are interested in either of these opportunities, please send a portfolio, covering letter and CV, clearly outlining your relevant computer software experience.
Both internships have the possibility of an extension beyond 3 months and future project collaborations.
Interviews will take place in late June.
