The Future Form of Design

is research degree sponsored by London College of Fashion/ Victoria & Albert Scholarship asking…

How will sustainable, grown, natural materials impact on the way we approach footwear design form and constructions? As we move to more sustainable bio materials and grown processes, how will good 21st century manufactured design forms be determined?  The aims of the research is to advance future manufactured design forms and to exploit design form possibilities of manufactured grown bio materials. The research will be informed by the V&A archives and underpinned by practice based research.

‘Manufacturing in 2050 will look very different from today, and will be virtually unrecognisable from that of 30 years ago…. ‘ The Future of UK Manufacturing – UK Department of Business and Innovation. 2013

In late 2016 Liz Ciokajlo and Rhian Solomon formed research and design consultancy OurOwnsKIN.
