2017 was a great year for new, innovative designs. For every great idea, there is a creative process that brings that idea to life. DesignMilk reflects on last year’s top modern design processes that proved to have a great reward.
From Skram’s Altai Side Table to Poppin’s Pitch Collection, DesignMilk delves into what it took to develop each and every design on the list, including our very own Love Me Not pendant light, designed by Pascale Girardin.
It all starts with a sketch; an idea that solves a problem or offers a new way to view an otherwise mundane object. It is edited and redrawn, altered and refined until the details are just right. More often than not, the process stops here. It becomes a dead end. Either resources are unavailable or other designs are pursued in its place. But sometimes, there are diamonds in the rough. Designs so brilliant, they drive the sketch forward. These are the creations that leave us in awe.
