Ross Lovegrove (1958-) is one of the key figures in contemporary British design. His visionary creations are always played on fluid organic forms, inspired by nature but enriched by an alienating touch that gives them an almost science-fiction look, which makes them appear like fascinating artifacts, children of alien civilizations. With a strong ecological sensitivity, Lovegrove is also very attentive to the research of his materials: his projects are futuristic not only in form, but also in technology, prefiguring an entirely eco-sustainable world. Born in Wales, in the 1980s he accumulated extensive experience abroad working first in the German studio Frogdesign (specialized in technology, with creations such as the first Macintosh for Apple) and later in the French office of Knoll. Returning to his homeland at the end of the decade, he opened a studio in London that was immediately very popular and works not only for the major furniture brands (such as Moroso, Vondom, Gufram, Cappellini, Natuzzi Italia, BD Barcelona Design, Driade and many others) and lighting (such as Luceplan or Artemide), but extends its approach to design also to everyday objects or to packaging of great spectacular impact for consumer products.
