Overview

"Supernatural presents the work of Ross Lovegrove, one of the most interesting and fascinating of the contemporary designers. His work ranges from furniture to high-tech products, from waterbottles to airplane seats, and explores the creation of sculptural and organic shapes using sophisticated technology and materials." In recent years Ross Lovegrove has worked on a design concept that he likes to define as 'organic essentialism', inspired by elements and aesthetics taken from the natural world and reshaped in futuristic forms. His interest in this sort of new naturalism, which he terms 'Supernatural', is accompanied by research into new materials, new applications and new methods of production. This combination of archetypal inspiration and up-to-date technology makes him one of the most interesting and unusual figures in the design world. Written by the designer himself, this is the first book to be dedicated solely to Lovegrove's work. Supernatural is an exploration of his mode of design, providing insights into his motivations and approach to the creative process.
