When visiting Primate in Edinburgh, we paid a short visit to Splintr – a craft workshop, founded by three DJCAD graduates – Steve Swanton, Jack Fisher and Francis Munnoch. I really like the aim of Jack’s 4th year project Furnify – to make nice furniture from waste materials.
I could feel that Splintr is trying to source materials wisely as well. These guys are not afraid of coming with straight-forward ideas, working with found objects – for example cutting extinguishers in half. Inspiring.
These three guys cooperated and did a lot of work on the Social Digital 2014 Degree show, which has shown both in very appealing stand design, as well as in them receiving a “best stand” prize at New Designers exhibition in London. Well done!
