Ross Lovegrove

*1958

Design inspired by nature

Ross Lovegrove, born in Cardiff, Wales, in 1958, is a famous industrial designer with a great passion for sustainability and the beautiful forms created by nature. While designing he aims at breathing life into industrial designs; the artificially, industrially produced object should be given a certain degree of naturalness. In his designs, Lovegrove combines the functionality of the products with a near-natural design language. By doing so, he adds an emotional warmth to inanimate objects that leaves no viewer untouched. The designs penned by Lovegrove look as if they were created organically rather than in the context of an industrial manufacturing process. Another typical feature of the sculptural objects by Lovegrove is the tactile component. Merely the design language and the surfaces tempt the viewer to touch the object and to also haptically experience it. As a light designer, Lovegrove could particularly excel with his designs for the Italian high-class manufacturer Artemide.

Exclusive designs for Artemide

Forms close to nature can be found, amongst others, in the Artemide Skydro. The high gloss chrome-plated elements of the organically shaped light remind us of overdimensioned pebble stones. By combining multiple Skydro pieces a fascinating reflection surface is created. The Cosmic Leaf Terra Halo is another design Lovegrove created for Artemide which looks like a huge leaf from another galaxy. The natural, scale-like texture of the surface as well as the realistic-looking leaf-shape let the Cosmic Leaf Terra almost appears like a natural leaf that slowly soars on the breath of the wind.

When designing the Aqua Cil light range, Lovegrove was inspired by his observations of vortices and waves. Thus, the Aqua Cil Terra with its glossy diffuser looks like running water that was frozen during its movement.
