Salvaged pieces get a clever, modern twist in the home of eco designer Adrian Draigo
This is no simple recycling job, but the work of a master matchmaker.
However, Adrian speaks lightly of his ability to spot unusual things that fit neatly together. “It is just serendipity, not any genius,” he says. “My mother had an ethic of not throwing things away, so I probably inherited a bit of that from my parents; they had that ‘make do and mend’ mindset. Besides, I always liked fixing things, so I think it just evolved.”
Nonetheless, Adrian’s modest claim to simply be making do and mending is belied by the fact that his work has not only been shown at the 100% Design London exhibition last year, but is currently on tour around the country as part of the Lighten Up tour organised by the [re]design group. In fact, Adrian studied and worked in film and 3D graphic animation before becoming a designer, and his ability to think in 3D comes in handy when he is conceptualising how a piece will fit together.
