Nick Rawcliffe of London-based Raw Studio says: “My work is a result of a holistic design process informed through my diverse background. The finished pieces all combine unique concepts from a Royal College of Art training with the efficiency of process learned from a mechanical engineering degree, and mix the functionality of a Bauhaus education with wabi sabi identity learned from working in Japan.”
Nick’s aim is to create pieces efficient for one-off or small batch production, often inspired by an interest in novel materials and industrial processes available locally. Much of this thinking is intended to blur the line between craft and technology in design and production. Each piece has a narrative hidden in its unique design process that adds an extra dimension to the value of the finished work.
