ANCIENT CRAFTS MEET INDUSTRIAL DESIGN - SIMON HASAN
Blueprint CT features select works from UK artist Simon Hasan. Simon works in the territory between ancient Crafts processes and industrial design. His work is imbued with a richness and texture borne from the use of techniques and materials from these two contradictory worlds.
Simon’s approach can best be described as a type of Design Archaeology; a combination of historical research and hands-on material experimentation. The goal is to nurture compelling and relevant outcomes for any given context. Avoiding a particular aesthetic style, Simon’s distinctive work often layers materials, processes and textures to create long-lasting objects with a story to tell.
