Stretched Resources - Ceramics




_
Stretched Resources is our latest collection that aims to convey the strain humanity has put on the world during the Anthropocene. The ores shown on this design have been carefully picked due to various scientific papers and journals noting them as being the most high in demand or running out quickly, hence why the plate seems to be stretching thin.

Stretched Resources - Rug




_
Stretched Resources rug is part of our latest collection that aims to convey the strain humanity has put on the world during the Anthropocene. The ores shown on this design have been carefully picked due to various scientific papers and journals noting them as being the most high in demand or running out quickly, hence why the carpet seems to be stretching thin.

As part of this commentary on 21st century society, Mitchell trained a Neural Network with images from old geography textbooks. The algorithm, running on a supercomputer, could then illustrate new rock ores with guidance from reference photos. The end results are so convincing, it's hard to believe that these graphics weren't created directly by hand.

What do you like the most about being a Designer?
“We are very lucky, we are the first to see a product before anyone else. There is a great sense of magic when you consider that your role is to be behind the scenes deciding what the stage should look like, in which billions of people live. I always remember how special that responsibility is when visitors come by our studio, you can see the joy in their eyes when they catch a preview of something that we haven’t yet published or released. I still feel the same joy and responsibility every day that I come to work!

Tiara of Tears




_
A cloud stirs, a figure emerges. Hyade’s eyes are red with despair. She continues to climb the clouds, reaching up to Helios her one true love. Her foot slips, eyes widen, hand reaches - she catches herself just in time.  

Tears fall around her, vanishing through the misty clouds to the earth far below. She looks up, in the distance Helios points behind her. Her tears suddenly no longer fall. They gather in a pile atop a cloud, like crystals upon cotton, light spilling into spectrum around. Helios used his last wish to cast her a safety net, wherein now lies a tiara of tears. Sometimes, when the sun shines just right, you might catch a glimpse of that tiara. The physical embodiment of their love.

Morris Day Bed Sofa




Brunel University London Kingston Lane Uxbridge, Middlesex UB8 3PH
This British day bed design is over 160 years old, and has never been seen... until today

The Morris Daybed was a sketch hidden amongst the notebooks of world famous English textile maker William Morris circa 1855. Discovered in the Birmingham Museum archives in 2020 by Mitchell and his team, the studio felt obligated to bring his furniture dream to life! Exhibited here in Kensington apartment graffitied with flag mural by emerging artist Ipek Akarsu.

Development of this piece is kindly being funded by Brunel University and Santander UK as part of the MadeInBrunel Alumni network.

Stairway to Heaven




_
The iconic song by Led Zeppelin inspired this lamp. Lyrics rich in cryptic references to allegories and mysticism inevitably resulted in a spiritually profound Aztec-esque aesthetic leading up to and into the light.

Experiment, one-off, not for sale

Cheers Lamp




_
This latest work by Mitchell brings all the connotations of a traditional candelabra into the home through a modern and audaciously iconic design story.

The forms are guided by a variety of glassware which originally evolved from a singular shape into a whole range in order to make different beverages look and taste better. It is this beauty and ingenuity in form and function that Mitchell presents centrally in the room for viewers to appreciate.

Catenary Lamps




_
A Catenary is the elegant natural curve a hanging rope or chain forms under its own weight.

Inspired by 20th century Neofuturism and Gaudi’s prototypes, Mitchell explored the geometry for months with the result of this study being a range of decorative wall lamps entirely shaped by gravity.

Made from PVC within a soft and thick bouclé fabric cover, it is the worlds first portable luxury sofa!

Crafted with people who travel and rent apartments all around the world in mind, it can be deflated and packed away in a small postage box and sent to location ahead of arrival.

Small weights, inspired by those seen on the 1784 Montgolfier Brother balloon, hang around the sides ensuring sofa stability when in use.

Hug Lamps




_
2020 was tough, we couldn’t spend time with family and friends when we needed them most. Weddings cancelled, businesses closed, jobs lost, loved ones lost, families separated and curfews imposed. I hope 2021 is the year where we can safely hold each other again

The Hug Lamp is illumed by bringing the two sculptural figures together. They glow on contact.

Duo Vitae Lamps




_
These totemic floor lights are made by stacking lampshades. When it’s time to switch up your interior design, you can disassemble the shades and sell them individually and earn more than you paid for the original lamps...

This is due to the price difference between buying lampshades wholesale or individually.

Devoti is a mystical worshiper embodying the cult of smartphone ownership and our obsession with battery life.

They present a charging coil as an alter for devices to rest.

Roof Tile Table




_
I had an idea a while back gazing over the rooftops. How could this ubiquitous material be brought into the home in a beautiful and functional way?

The end result of various explorations was this table. It seemed only fitting to illume it from within, so the light would carry the warm colour of the terracotta around the room.

Power Station Planter




_
I really love the idea something as damaging as a Power Station can be home to nature. In this design, the chimney stores and slowly distributes water to plants so you don’t need to worry about them drying out.

Harbour Bowls




_
When arranged, they form a table centrepiece perfect as an artistic statement in any trendy Australian apartment!

Suspension Lamp




_
We’ve always been disappointed by ‘reading lamps’ as the single light source always casts such distracting shadows. Suspension Lamp solves this by using a LED strip in suspension directly over where the light is needed.

Kiln Vase




_
Kiln Vase is part of our Kiln Ceramics series, paying tribute to the decaying pottery industry near Mitchells hometown.

Mardy Lamp




_
Through appreciating forms and emotions associated with our youth, we might rediscover some of that wide-eyed curiosity and wonder in the world. The term ‘Mardy’ in English is used to describe a sullen or pouting child.

Hathor Lamps




_
In ancient Egypt, goddess Hathor was considered to be the personification of joy, love and sexuality. In keeping with this theme, these sculptural luminaires intend to illume a space that may yield such moments.

Light Pollution 




_
I was looking at a Power Station on my way to work on a beautiful morning and thought the scene was too picturesque with the sun backlit clouds coming out of the chimney. In my daydream I saw the cloud wilt, personifying the damage these cathedrals of power do the environment. As the cloud was illuminated, it seemed logical to name the product ‘Light Pollution lamp’ to humour the audience and bring attention to the multitude of pollution problems we bestow on the world.

Squirrel Chair




_
The perfect way to add a hint of stylish fun to your dining room









Lighting, 25.11.2020

Fig Lamp




_
Fruit of the Ficus Carica tree form in an usually way. At first they grow upwards seeming to defy gravity. As their size increases, their tone becomes a rich purple and the increased weight causes the supporting branch to flop. Inspired by the aesthetics of this process, Mitchell produced the Fig Lamp.

Wattholm Bowls




Wattholm bowls created for KOI in London. Known for high quality ingredients and beautiful presentation, it seemed only fitting to have a custom ramen bowl produced to present food better at their establishments.

At one point, Stoke-On-Trent was home to 4,000 Kilns. Now only 47 remain standing. Mitchell collaborated with Cergian to bring this dying story to life in a functional sculpture for the home.









Decor, 15.10.2020
