For People and Places


Acclaimed British designer Paul Cocksedge will discuss the process behind his studio’s projects, which include everything from products and architectural installations to public art pieces and furniture design. He will explore the importance of putting simplicity at the heart of his work, and discuss using design to deliver it at all scales. In the wake of his newly revealed Paternoster Square installation, Cocksedge will also speak about the role a sense of place can play in projects, and the importance of making people-centred design work – a practice he's been honing for the last decade.
