Dominic Wilcox recently gave a brilliant performance at Milan Design Festival, where he beat a 3D printer to completing a model of the Duomo. His skewed and humorous perspective on design and everyday life has us enthralled as to what his next trick will be. See it at KK Outlet from September 7.
Dominic Wilcox is the designer responsible for the products you see on blogs that make you press "share". Pieces such as his intricate Watch Sculptures, covering subjects from protest and CCTV to money and football. His thought provoking War Bowl, and his Designer V’s 3D Printer live event have cemented his reputation as one of the most inspiring contemporary British designers.
“I'm interested in certain areas of contemporary art, craft and design and my work moves between many different areas of creative expression. Some of my ideas develop from observations on human behaviour and I express them through the objects I create. I also experiment with materials to find surprises that can’t be found simply by thinking with a pen or computer.”
For his solo at KK Outlet, Wilcox will launch his new book featuring unseen sketches of his most brilliant project ideas past, present and future. He will also launch an exclusive new project - a GPS shoe.
Exhibition Runs: 7 September - 25 September
