Lauren Moriartys Geometric Structure pieces are inspired by a fascination with the effects of geometric patterns when they are put into repeat. The cushions and lamps are made from EVA rubber foam, more often used in wire and cable insulation, which can be moulded to form cubes, cylinders or cushion shapes. Panels of the material have also been used to make curtains.
Moriarty graduated from a multimedia textile course at Loughborough University this year. Having completed a work placement at Reebok headquarters in Boston (won when she designed a modular footwear concept a set of shoes with various component pieces that clip onto a sole for a competition), she is in now talks with a number of manufacturers about putting the Geometric Structure series into production.
Other examples of her work, plus the Reebok concept, can be found at www.laurenmoriarty.co.uk
