De­sign Mu­seum’s Alex New­son on Paul Cocksedge

Australian T3 - - RADAR -

Paul Cocksedge cre­ates vis­ually spec­tac­u­lar and tech­ni­cally in­ge­nious de­signs that cel­e­brate the mag­i­cal and trans­for­ma­tive. The stu­dio he set up with Joana Pinho ex­plores the lim­its of tech­nol­ogy and ma­te­ri­als. Whether work­ing with com­plex tech­nol­ogy, in­ex­pen­sive found ma­te­ri­als like poly­styrene vend­ing ma­chine cups or ex­quis­ite hand-made glass, Cocksedge cre­ates vis­ually ar­rest­ing ob­jects and en­vi­ron­ments that en­gage. Thought-pro­vok­ing and witty, Cocksedge pro­duces both com­mer­cial and ex­per­i­men­tal work. His Dou­ble O bike lights that can be stored on a D lock have been nom­i­nated for this year’s De­signs of the Year com­pe­ti­tion, while The Vamp al­lows old speak­ers to be put back into use.
