DE­SIGN DONS

The light and soundob­ses­sive who breathes new life into old things

Australian T3 - - RADAR -

THERE ARE FEW DE­SIGN­ERS MORE SUITED TO THE pages of T3 magazine than Paul Cocksedge, who has suc­cess­fully carved out a niche for him­self in reusing found ob­jects to cre­ate play­ful new sculp­tures.

He’s adept at work­ing with large-scale in­stal­lations – such as an enor­mous canopy of lights in Mi­lan which re­acts when peo­ple kiss be­neath it. But it’s Cocksedge’s smaller-scale projects which have re­ally caught our eye – and ear. Re­pur­posed records be­come boom­ing cones for Change the Record, while The Vamp brings Blue­tooth con­nec­tiv­ity to junk store speak­ers. “For me, reusing per­fectly good tech­nol­ogy makes sense,” says Paul.
