RY DILKES

 

A designer-maker with a focus on circular design principles. Through the joining of materials, Ry aims to give authorship back to the end user of their objects, to produce a resourceful body of work that can be reconfigured and altered to suit our ever-changing needs. In practice, making use of waste -and found- materials to create functional objects that are environmentally considered, affordable, yet also desirable. 

 

Their work celebrates the transformative effect that processes can have on a material. Through the simplicity of cutting and joining, waste material can once again become functional, and bring together the coincidental nature of upcycling, with the utility and functionality of production design.
