Ross Lovegrove is a designer driven by passion for technology and a belief in resourceful, minimal design that draws from the principles of nature. His demonstrated success in industrial design began in the early 1980s, where he worked on products like the Sony Walkman and Apple computers, followed by work in various realms, such as automobile, aviation, staircase, chair, camera, and locomotive design. Lovegrove's personal artwork occupies a space for unbridled creativity; free from the parameters of mass production, (i.e. the ergonomics of a Henry Miller chair, or the functionality of a vehicle) sculptures such as his “Liquid” collection are created as experimentation with projects too ambitious to undertake industrially. Still, his artworks maintain the functional efficiency of science and nature and the recognizable, organic forms of his signature design aesthetic.
