Paul Cocksedge Studio is the internationally acclaimed design practice of partners Paul Cocksedge and Joana Pinho. Notable for in-house design of concepts, installations, public interventions and exclusive interior objects, the Studio explores the limits of technology in order to create unique design experiences. With an interdisciplinary approach and an acute sense of quality, Paul Cocksedge Studio reinvents contemporary design as an event.

 

London-based designer Paul Cocksedge attended Sheffield Hallam University, receiving a BFA in Industrial Design. He later returned to London to study under Ron Arad, receiving an MA in Product Design from the Royal College of Art in 2002. Paul was introduced to Issey Miyake and Ingo Maurer, both of whom staged early exhibitions of his work. Maurer went so far as to give Paul a show within his own show at Milan Design Week 2003, introducing Styrene, NeON, and an early work that was later developed into Life 01 for Flos. Paul Cocksedge Studio was founded the same year.

 

Paul's energy permeates his work from the design process and beyond. However all the pieces in his steadily expanding body of work are surprisingly distinct, in materials, form, and technologies employed. In regard to function, Paul was initially drawn to light, where he felt emancipated from the constraints of gravity. These suspended works include Styrene, NeON, Crystalized, Sapphire Light, Veil, and Light as Air.
