About the DesignerFresh West
Marcus Beck and Simon Macro gained first class honors in fine art from Manchester Metropolitan University and University of Brighton respectively. After graduating Marcus concentrated on the production of limited edition furniture, whilst Simon worked with renowned designer Thomas Heatherwick. Having known each other since childhood, and sharing the same design ideals Marcus and Simon combined to establish Freshwest in 2005. Located in Pembrokeshire West Wales the studio and workshop see development, prototyping and fabrication tanks place under a single roof. Freshwest embraces both experimental and functional design and is driven by their desire to realize ideas. Self initiated concept pieces are at the heart of the studio, however the commercial aspect of Freshwest has also seen them win awards and contracts in furniture, interiors and branding. The studio's ethics is never to be restricted to a single design discipline and to experiment with different ideas and genres.
The Brave New World Lamp started as a concept piece of random thought-initiated construction. Following the example of old Far Eastern bamboo scaffolding the Brave New World Lamp was developed without a design or plan in place however each piece of wood is carefully notched and pegged together to form an integral part of the overall mechanical structure. The limitations of using small pieces of wood to create a large form allowed the design process to be as responsive as possible. Much like a sculptures’ relationship to their material.
