DORODESIGN LIKES: RCA students open Clerkenwell Week Design with Jaguar-inspired artwork
Two Royal College of Art students have designed a Jaguar-inspired sculpture to celebrate the opening of Clerkenwell Design Week in London.
Ewan Gallimore and Claire Miller developed their idea alongside Jaguar’s Advanced Design team in Whitley, Coventry, by using technologies applied in the creation of Jaguar production and concept cars.
The two were the successful team from a selection of nine groups who submitted entries after Jaguar’s challenge to the RCA’s Vehicle Design and Textile Design departments. Their task was to create a joint exterior and interior form study that expresses their vision of the future Jaguar Design Language in either a sports or luxury context. Student teams were asked to consider the proportions, surfacing, line interactions and aesthetic beauty when expressing their vision.
Ewan and Claire said, “We began the project by looking at light, specifically the way the light falls within the space at Clerkenwell. We thought about how our form could accentuate this light and convey volume through its use of materials and our knowledge of how these materials react with one another.
“Our form relates to the Jaguar brand through its sculptural volumes, bespoke materials and visual lightness. These elements helped us to create a sculpture that aimed to display a seamless transition between interior and exterior space.”
