‘Delight In Light’ in a Video Conversation with Product Designer Alexander Taylor

Delight In Light was allowed through the doors of Alexander Taylor’s Design Studio to discuss aspects of his work, past and present and get his unique insights into the design world and Design Education.

The video initially explores the inspiration behind his ‘Fold’ Light which was the first product that was designed for internationally renowned producer Established & Sons. The Design won Best in Lighting for the Elle Decoration International Design Awards in 2005 and was soon included in the permanent collection of leading museums and institutions in the world, including most significantly the Museum of Modern Art, New York.

The Second part of the video looks at his latest product in 2012 …. the ‘Grip Torchlight’. Grip draws direct reference to the familiar form of the BMX bicycle grip, this LED torchlight is in response to the silicone rubber material brief of the new Praxis collection.

Finally the video draws on his extensive experience of working as a Design Maker, then as a product designer for industry and more recently taking experience from a role as a professor at the ECAL in Lausanne, Switzerland on the Masters Industrial Design. Also as a visiting Lecturer at the Royal College of Art in Design Products. He offers a wealth of experience and wisdon for any young budding designer.
