Double-clicking day in day out has been driving me to distraction.
I need to make things.
In an attempt to get my practical and enthusiastic hands dirty, I’ve been in touch with a company I did work-experience with once called hive.
Hive is… ‘an award winning interdisciplinary design partnership specialising in furniture, lighting, interior accessories and design.’
I used to work weekends in their Oxo Tower studio. They’ve now relocated to brand spanking new premises in New Cross and taken me on part-time to do a spot of product development and model-making for their latest range. Hoorah!
Anyhow. Yes. Today. Day two was productive, as was day one. I’ve been developing ideas and mocking up models for new lighting designs, a modular shelving system/ room divider type thing, and a new range of packaging. Phew.
