1. Ilse Crawford’s nominee Marcin Rusak

Marcin Rusak born in 1987 in Warsaw, Poland, but lives and works in London. He studies contemporary patterns of consumption, industry methods of manipulation, and the complicated systems we support. His work is the intersection of value, ephemerality and aesthetics, creating works that asks questions, references history and proposes possible future scenarios, utilizing the power of materials, volume and form that he moves fluidly from decorative art objects to sculptures, two dimensional work and back again each time with a story as his guide.

John Booth wanted to be a textile designer; he was studying Fashion Print at Central St Martins when he realized he could channel his “interest in fashion and textiles through his passion for drawing”. Whether he is designing ceramic objects, textile prints or doing fashion illustrations, John Booth follows the same creative path: his work is instantaneous, always sporting strong, often primary colours and is never conceptual or conceptualized.

Japanese architect Azusa Murakami and British artist Alexander Groves are the Studio SWINE.  Obsessed with materials, travelling the world from South America to some uninhabited South Pacific parts or to the Shandong province of China, they consider design as “an agent for change”, willing to change the perception of materials by turning waste into luxury.

6. Tom Dixon’s nominee Zuza Mengham

Zuza Mengham is a London based Artist and Designer. Her work explores the join between the recovery of traditional crafts and the creation of her own new methods of making. From giant steel and neon chandeliers housing hanging plants to small geometric glassy sculptures, her work is seated within an atheistic of modernist abstraction.
She also works on a jewellery series which explores synthesising particular materials such as powdered copper and slate, allowing the natural density of each component or pigment to drop and rise creating spontaneously marbled colours.
