How can we use the balance and harmony of nature to inspire design?

Elijah Forsyth, 22

In the current ‘disposable’ society that we live in, there is a mass of unused plastic products damaging the environment. As the population grows, it is ever more important to protect and understand the environment around us. It is my aim to create beautiful products, using raw, natural and sustainable materials. I chose to use stone stacking techniques for the table base to portray the delicate balance of nature and the environment itself. I wanted to emphasise that if we use materials consciously and sustainably, we can fuel society’s need for new products, without damaging our world.
