MSc Applied Technologies alumnus collaboration at the Milano Design Week 2018
MSc Applied Technologies alumnus Valerio Adiutori who was studying with us during the academic year 2016-2017, has been taking part in the production and development of some of the pieces designed by McCollin Bryan that will be exposed during the Milano Design Week 2018 at Galleria Rossana Orlandi from the 17th to the 22nd of April.
Don McCollin & Maureen Bryan set up McCollin Bryan in 1998, designing furniture and objects in their London studio. Their approach has been strongly driven by instinct and a mutual need ‘to make’. The fusion of their backgrounds in textiles (McCollin at The Royal College of Art) and ceramics (Bryan at Middlesex Polytechnic) led to their distinctive portfolio of designs.
Key to their working practice is the process of experimentation and the development of visual concepts. While McCollin explores surface textures and patterns, Bryan designs forms that have sculptural impact. They are both inspired to create pieces that will surprise and intrigue the viewer.
Valerio has been working with the small team of assistants in their London workshop, McCollin Bryan utilise a combination of resins, plasters, metals and wood. The bold and inventive results are produced in small batches, limited editions and unique pieces.
