Jaguar-inspired artwork unveiled for Clerkenwell Design Week

Article by Anita Panait, on May 22, 2013

Royal College of Art students Ewan Gallimore and Claire Miller have unveiled a spectacular art installation -- inspired by Jaguar design -- to an exclusive audience at the opening of the Clerkenwell Design Week slated from May 21-23, 2013 in London. Gallimore and Miller created the installation in association with Jaguar's Advance Design team in Whitley, Coventry, employing the technologies and facilities used in creating Jaguar concept cars and production designs.

Jaguar approached both the MA Vehicle Design and MA Textile Design Departments of the RCA with a mission to come up with a joint exterior and interior form study that expresses their vision of future Jaguar Design Language in either a sports or luxury context.

Teams made up of students from both vehicle design and textile design backgrounds were made to factor in proportions, surfacing, line interactions and aesthetic beauty when expressing their vision of Jaguar's future design language.

Nine different teams presented their outstanding proposals, all of which were considered carefully. After much deliberation by the Jaguar Advance Design team, the team comprised of Gallimore and Miller emerged victorious. The pair remarked that since Jaguar has a long history of ground-breaking design, they knew that they needed to create “something truly special” to gain the attention of Jaguar Advanced Design Director Julian Thomson.

They said that started the project by looking at the way “the light falls within the space at Clerkenwell.” The duo remarked that they though on how their form could “accentuate this light” and convey volume through the use of materials and their knowledge of how the materials react with one another. Jaguar is the primary sponsor of Clerkenwell Design Week.
