Time to Design – Work is progressing

At the end of September, the Scottish winner of this year’s Time to Design, Catherine Aitken, arrived back in Denmark after exhibiting at the London Design Festival. She is already hard at work on her project “Fade” at the Danish Art Workshops. We paid her a little visit last week to see how her work is progressing.

Catherine will be exhibiting her work at the Normann Copenhagen Flagship Store from the 20th of November to the 6th of December 2012.

Her project ‘Fade’ is all about exploring a gradual change in intensity through increasing and decreasing levels of color and light or altering the presence of a particular material or pattern. To do this, Catherine is working with different types of cord as well as other materials.

Here is some early prototypes of a couple of lamps that she has been working on.

Catherine explains: “The project is well on its way, and is developing from day to day. At first, I was planning on showing lighting only, but now, it looks like there will be some other pieces as well. It’s important to me that the pieces I show convey my concept and approach to materials and that they are executed to a high standard.” We can’t wait to see the end result!

Stay tuned here on the blog for more about Catherines Aitken’s project.
