Thomas Heatherwick

Thomas Heatherwick
Thomas Alexander Heatherwick, CBE, RDI (born 17 February 1970) is an English designer and the founder of London-based design practice Heatherwick Studio. Since the late 1990s Heatherwick has emerged as one of Britain’s most gifted and imaginative designers.His innovative approach to design has earned him a reputation as an "ideas engine".

Since 2010 Heatherwick has exhibited a knack for projects that are intimately connected to a sense of national or local identity. These include the Olympic Cauldron, the New Bus for London, the first new double decker bus commissioned for London in 50 years, and the UK pavilion at Expo 2010.Other notable works include The Rolling Bridge, East Beach Cafe, and a plan for a biomass power station in BEI-Teesside.

Heatherwick works with a team of over 80 architects, designers and makers from a combined studio and workshop in King’s Cross, London. Since being founded, his studio studio has worked with an extensive range of design disciplines, including architecture, engineering, transport and urban planning to furniture, sculpture and product design.The wide range of skill sets found at Heatherwick Studio is a reaction to Heatherwick’s frustration at encountering "sliced-up ghettos of thought" of sculpture, architecture, fashion, embroidery, metalwork, product and furniture design all in separate departments. He considers all design in three dimensions, not as multi-disciplinary design, but as a single discipline: three-dimensional design. Unlike many architecture practices, Heatherwick Studio does not have a fixed style and focuses on problem solving.
