A lecture by Thomas Thwaites. Introduction by Anna Puigjaner, coordinator of Core I Studio, and response by Jaffer Kolb, Core I Studio.
Thomas Thwaites is a British designer, writer, and educator. He studied economics and biology at University College London and in 2009 gained an MA in Design Interactions at the Royal College of Art. In a nine-month project as part of his MA course, he set out to build a toaster from scratch, sparking questions about consumerism and society today, and how we use materials as designers in the anthropocene.
