Ella Evans

As a designer, I can often be found sourcing materials because they make me curious.  This leads to developing work using both domestic and industrial waste materials such as plywood, sheet-metal and broken plastics.

In this project, I have been informed by the concept of modular design alongside my extensive research into the value of play beyond childhood.  My interactive material collection can be pieced together like a jigsaw to create infinite variations of interior surfaces.  Customisable and changeable, the final design is open-ended and puts people at the heart of the design process, reconnecting adults with their playful inner child.

I hope my collection will also demonstrate the creative potential and commercial value of waste which continue to be an urgent and important message for our throwaway society.
