Born in Wales in 1958, Ross Lovegrove began in the Eighties to work as a designer for Frog Design elaborating projects for Sony and Apple. After a time spent in France as a consultant for Knoll International, he came back to London and started working for Cappellini, Driade, Moroso, Olympus, Luceplan; some of the projects done for them are now part of the permanent collections of the Moma of New York and of the Design Museum of London. Lovegrove has the ability to seduce with appealing fluid shapes, persuasive technology, rich and beautiful colours and materials. He is inspired by natural world forms, but he also deeply cares of materials, not forgetting their eco-compatibility, in a skillful synthesis of form and function.
Ross Lovegrove graduated from Manchester Polytechnic in Industrial Design degree in 1980 and gained a Master of Design from the Royal College of Art, London in 1983.
Winner of numerous international awards, his work has been extensively published and exhibited internationally including the Museum of Modern Art in New York, the Guggenheim Museum NY, and the Design Museum, London, when in 1993 he was curator of the first Permanent Collection.
