Fernando Laposse

Fernando Laposse is a London based Mexican designer with a BA in product design from Central Saint Martins.

 

His work is deeply rooted in material experimentation and craft with a great emphasis on self production and the DIY culture. Fernando strives to transform materials which are cheap, readily available, and in some cases waste by-products or perishable into objects with higher perceived value which has allowed him to make crossovers between product, set and food design. His projects frequently raise questions regarding whole system thinking, ephemerality, the act of consumption and the politics of food.

 

Fernando’s work has been shown primarily in Europe including the Modern Art Museum of Trento (MART) in Italy as part Progetto Cibo, a retrospective on the last 15 years of the food design movement, Libby Sellers Gallery in London, South London Gallery, Project B Gallery in Milan, Merci-Merci in Paris, and the St, Etienne Biennale. He is an active member of the Experimental Food Society in London and was selected as one of the 70 UK young designers to watch by The British Design Council in the material world category.

 

His list of selected clients include Bentley, Selfridges, Marks and Spencers, Daum Cristallerie, Haviland, Unilever, W-Hotels, Hyatt Regency, Merci-Merci Paris, and the Institute of Making to name a few.
