People in Process: Adam Blencowe

Adam Blencowe graduated from the Design Products course at the Royal College of Art in 2015. He now works from his studio in Bow, East London

His approach to design centres on combining existing materials and systems in new ways to produce unexpected results. For example Fuzzy Logic adapted a Makita jigsaw to make precision felted textiles. Thaw found a new way of casting ordinary plaster of paris using the ephemeral property of ice.

In his work he examines in forensic detail traditional techniques and processes exploring their specific characteristics thus enabling him to reinterpret them in a contemporary way.

Adam will be exhibiting work from his series ‘The Adhocist Chair’, and holding a workshop on Saturday 12th March exploring the exercise of designing and making with limited time and resources. Places are limited so please book your space here.
