Design Museum’s Alex Newson on Paul Cocksedge
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.
