He appears in conversation with Max Fraser.

Ross Lovegrove (22 September, Auditorium)

Inspired by the logic and beauty of nature, Ross Lovegrove’s designs possess a trinity between technology, materials science and intelligent organic form. From his work in the early 80s on projects such as Walkmans for Sony and Computers for Apple, he moved to Paris as a consultant to Knoll International, becoming author of the highly successful Alessandri Office System. Invited to join the Atelier de Nimes along with Jean Nouvel and Phillipe Stark, he worked with Louis Vuitton, Hermes and Dupont amongst others.

Naomi Cleaver (23 September, Auditorium)

Naomi Cleaver is an interior designer at the forefront of British property’s most dynamic housing sectors – student accommodation and large scale new build rental – where her projects have become cherished by patrons and residents alike for their sensual, occasionally mischievous and always human-centred approach.

Naomi is an ambassador for The Geffrye Museum, the museum of the home, in Hoxton, London.
