Ross Lovegrove Basic Information Born in 1958 in Penarth,Wales United Kingdom He is an Industrial Designer “I’m interested in natural growth patterns, and the beautiful forms that only nature creates. How that flows through me and how that comes out is what I’m trying to understand.” Biography Ross Lovegrove Studied at the Manchester Polytechnic now known as the Manchester Metropolitan University and graduated in 1980. Then in 1983 he went to the Royal College of Art, London and went on the complete his master of Design Art.

In the early 80s he want to work as a desgner for Frog Design in Germany designing computers for Apple and Walkmans for Sony,after that he moved to Paris as a Consultant to Knoll of International. He was invited to join the Atelier de Nimes along with Jean Nouvel and Phillipe Stark, consulting to - amongst others - Cacharel, Louis Vuitton, Hermes and Dupont.Returning to London in 1988 he has completed projects for many furniture, industrial, and product manufacturers. He is the winner of numerous international awards and his work has been published and exhibited internationally including the MOMA in New York, the Guggenheim Museum NY, Axis Centre in Japan, Pompidou Centre in Paris and the Design Museum in London.

The in 1990 he set up his own design office in London, Studio X. Since that time, he has acquired many international clients including Sony, British Airways, Kartell, Cappellini, Tag Heuer, and Herman Miller. Lovegrove, has a unique ability to seduce the consumer with appealing fluid shapes, persuasive technology, rich color and beautiful materials. He is inspired by forms of the natural world, the possibilities of new manufacturing techniques and the ability to evoke an emotional response in users. Ross Lovegrove is a designer and visionary whose work is considered to be at the very apex of stimulating a profound change in the physicality of our three dimensional world. Ross Lovegroves New Ideas Solar Tree The 6m-tall street light in the shape of a tree has 10 ‘branches’ equipped with photovoltaic cells to collect solar energy during the day, four of which provide light from LED fittings when it is darker.
The light produced is equivalent to an output of 23 watts and when fully charged, the streetlight is able to function for 7-10 days without further charging.
The streetlight is also designed to be a landmark and meeting place for visitors, with the sculptured concrete base providing seating for passers-by.
Ross Lovegrove attended the launch of the installation and said: ‘If the only beautiful thing you see outside is cars, then it’s a very sad reflection of society. This is designed to be a beacon for the area even when the lights are not in use.’
Solar Tree has been installed for Clerkenwell Design Week and will remain in place throughout the Olympic Games until September. Bamboo Bicycle True innovation requires an open mind, a willingness to embrace new ideas - or to create a completely new way of thinking. That principle is what led to the creation of the Ross Lovegrove - designed Bamboo. When properly prepared (as it is on our Bamboo), fast-growing bamboo is stronger than steel, with a wonderful natural radiance. This intricately finished yet highly functional bike was co-developed with the expertise of Brazilian bamboo specialist Flavio Deslandes, and is handmade in Denmark. Some of Ross Lovegroves Designs Ross Lovegrove influence on the World of Design And Technology He was voted one of the “70 Designers that Shaped the World”.He has won many awards for his work for example the World Technology Prize, Time Magazine/CNN (2005) and Awarded Royal Designer for Industry by The Royal Society of Arts (2004),also has many expeditions around the world like in the “Modern Art Museum in New York” and the “Axis Centre in Japan”and he worked to design products for big technology companies like Sony and Apple we may not know the name but we do recognize the results of the work he has done in the world of Design and Technology.

New Ideas Bike After receiving input from more than 300 citizens, star designer Philippe Starck designed this bicycle x kick scooter for Bordeaux’s bike share program.
Designed to let users either ride or scoot along, it’s got hefty baskets and racks to make errands and commuting a bit more practical. While it looks heavy, word is it’s a lightweight frame and it has integrated lights. We’ve talked to several people that run bike share programs and they all say the bikes need to be fairly robust to handle the abuse they take and hold up to not-always-polished city streets. Those bikes are usually around 40 to 50 lbs, but geared super easy and are very stable, to the point where you barely notice their weight.
These will be made by Peugeot with about 3,000 bikes being ready when the program starts by the end of the year. Chairs The collection consists of a floor lounger, a hanging lounger, and a pair of seats set on a platform to encourage intimate contemplation and conversation with your family. If you don’t like the color perhaps you can visit Philippe Starck contemporary dark lounge to get your color more customizable. Some of Philippe Starcks Desgins Philippe Starck influence on the World of Design And Technology “A world without Philippe Starck is as inconceivable as it is conceivable. His influence on the world of design - the process by which humans shape and meet their own needs - is at one and the same time ubiquitous and diffuse. It is at times visible in everything and simultaneously barely identifiable. His work embodies the principles of elite design - that the designed world must have its own aesthetic and spiritual identity both separable from and serving its function.”Quote bywww.culturedivine.com
So the influence he has had on the world of Design and Technology is very big. First he has been known by the President of France when he worked to design his private home,he has design many big hotels in New York like the “Paramount Hotel”, he has also won many awards like the IF Design award, 2002 and many more. He has products that he sells on his online store which has many categories under tables, luggage, chairs, watches, books, armchairs, stationery, tableware, lamps, radios, televisions, stools, bath accessories, fine art, and even his own organic food line in packaging designed.So many people do know him by his products and Famous architecture.
