A short summary of New Designers Exhibition 2015


A sea of fresh concepts and promising graduates filled the room at the most prestigious graduate exhibition in London this year. The Business Design Centre in Islington is transformed each July into a gallery comprised of the greatest conceptual ideas from all of the UK's highest achievers.

As a keen attendee each year, collating some of the favourites is often a challenge, however the most prominent concepts were those incorporating innovation with an eye for the finer details such as the packaging, the presentation and the finishing of the final prototype.

This article is here to provide a detailed summary of the designs that were evidently crafted with all the little details considered.

'Voyage' Headphones - This concept provides a design inspired by nature where emphasis has been placed on creating a user centric experience and the design is shaped around its given application with thought spared to the environment in which it is to be used and the feelings it is intended to provoke. Pyrography was utilised to etch the logo design onto the hardwood exterior which was a nice finishing touch.

Modern AC Cobra Concept - This design really stood out while visiting the automotive section of the exhibition as it takes key attributes from the traditional timely design and reworks them to fit with the current decade, a lot of work went into the finishing of this prototype and ensuring it stayed true to its predecessor.
