Fledglings: UAL Design Graduates


Fledglings is one of the freshest and most exciting events in designjunction 2014. Showcasing the work of a selection of graduates from London’s most creative design courses (BA 3D Design at Camberwell College of Arts, MA Design: Ceramics, Furniture and Jewellery at Central Saint Martins and BA Sculpture at Wimbledon College of Arts), the Fledglings stand presents these graduates as budding design professionals.

Works ranging across the spectrum of design will be showcased in this vibrant and engaging display. Products that are ready to be taken to the market will be seen alongside more experimental approaches. These include Katharina Gross’s wax made furniture and Dunia Tigris’s Lone Diner project that uses marquetry juxtaposed with construction grade

Deceptively simple design coupled with wit, imagination and craft all feature in the Fledglings’ work. Si Taylor makes exquisite bespoke bicycle-inspired furniture, from steel bicycle tubing and saddle leather. His Randonneur Chair will be shown alongside Sophia Mepham’s Equilibrium, a well-crafted high-end wooden bench made out of oak and meranti that eases into the form of the human body when you sit on it.

Many of the graduates have already gained media interest, including Gigi Barker (9191 Studio), who makes skin-like furniture that mimics roles of fat. Meanwhile designers and makers Happenstance Workshop who will be showing their SACK System are currently in talks with an online retailer to stock their work.

Designjunction is the most important global meeting point of the London Design Festival and a selection of the participants work in Fledglings relates back to their homelands. Ana Jiménez Palomar’s wooden furniture is made from extracting and analysing the traditional extravagant Mexican mask culture, while Yoshika Kobayashi’s sophisticated designs draw on her Japanese heritage.

Hal Foster, art critic, to speak at Camberwell College of Arts.


Hal Foster, art critic and professor at Princeton University in the United States, has joined the undergraduate fine art department at Camberwell College of Arts as a practitioner in residence.  He will give a talk at Camberwell’s Wilson Road lecture theatre next Tuesday, 10 June at 6:30pm, on the subject of “How to survive civilization or what Dada can still teach us”.

One of the leading voices in post-modern art criticism and critical art history, Foster is the author of numerous acclaimed theory books, including Compulsive Beauty, Return of the Real, Prosthetic Gods, and The Art-Architecture Complex. A fellow of the American Academy of Arts and Sciences, his contributions to contemporary cultural debates span over 30 years of publishing. He is currently a regular contributor to London Review of Books and editor of MIT Press’s October journal.

Over the coming year, Foster will play a key role in Camberwell College’s curriculum, collaborating directly with students through lectures, seminars, workshops and studio critiques. Foster is one of 42 creative leaders who has joined University of the Arts London, to offer insight to students across all the University’s disciplines, from design, fashion and media to performance, fine art and conservation. They will  give students hands-on support and advice as they develop their practice and build their career skills.

Of Foster’s appointment, the painter and fine art programme director Daniel Sturgis, said, “Both students and staff are absolutely delighted to be working with Hal Foster over the coming year.  His knowledge and scholarship is exemplary and to have a leading American academic working with us for the year is a unique honour. Foster’s appointment will complement and enhance our contextual studies delivery, which focuses on the way that “ideas” are held in the making process and how both art historical reflection and the contemporary world inhabit today’s artworks.”

Foster’s talk is free and open to everyone, but booking is essential.
