100% Design has opened yesterday and I had a good look around (still counting the blisters on my feet). A very nice little show within this big one is, as every year, the work of the TEN collective. This year they present TEN XYZ - an exploration of their varied perspectives on the complex issues of sustainability within design using digital manufacturing technologies.
Pictured above is Tomoko Azumi's Rooftop Tile Birdhouse and Chris Jackson's plant watering warm bottle from his series of Digital Readymades.
Shown above are Steve Breadland's Fruit Bowl and Salad Server (looking like robot arms in the attempt to make children eat more salad) as well as Gitta Gschwendtner's wooden Off-Cut Seats.
Brit Leissler lives and acts between London and Berlin. After receiving a Master degree in product design from the Royal College of Art in London she started her own Shoot the Stylist! design studio. She also works as a design educator for various institutions and founded Punch'n'Cuddle Ltd., producing and distributing her own products.
When taking a break from the design world she writes, sings and composes quirky electronic pop or travels the planet. Brit loves all forms of eccentricity, joins up the dots and aims to get into interesting conversations with all kinds of weird and wonderful people. As a hardcore digital camera gunslinger she shoots everything that moves and grooves. She doesn't eat animals, is hot for cheese, loves the Kensington Squirrels, robotic dance moves and life enhancing ideas.
