PAUL COCKSEDGE STUDIO A GUST OF WIND
AT THE VICTORIA & ALBERT MUSEUM LONDON
LONDON DESIGN WEEK 2010
Three hundred curvaceous pieces of Corian® were exhibited initially for one day only as part of the Victoria & Albert Museum' s Friday Late programme. The curved 'pages' appeared to form stack of paper that had been blown into the air by a gust of wind. Each of these limited edition pieces was initially engraved and then hand-formed by Paul  Cocksedge. Paul Cocksedge suggested the resulting pieces, which were be given away to the public as part of the event, should function as paper trays, becoming 'a place for wandering paper to gather'. 
This installation was made possible through collaboration with the London Design Festival, Victoria & Albert Museum and Corian®.
"I had always thought of Corian® as a heavy material. This installation is challenging this perception, creating a very light and dreamy piece."

London-based Paul Cocksedge Studio™ is the internationally acclaimed design practice of directors Paul Cocksedge and Joana Pinho.
With over 10 years experience and a strong team of collaborators, the practice has developed a unique reputation for thoroughly original and innovative design, underpinned by research into the limits of technology, materials and manufacturing processes.
Our catalogue includes an imaginative range of design products, architectural projects and sculptures, all infused with the sense of simplicity, joy and wonder that has come to characterise Paul Cocksedge’s work.
We have recently expanded the practice and formed two distinctive teams.
One team is dedicated to our online Paul Cocksedge Shop which features an ever-growing range of exclusive products, including lights (‘Styrene’, ‘Pole light’), playful objects (‘Bookmark’, ‘Invisible bookend’) and innovative solutions for amplifying sound, another of Paul’s abiding interests (‘Change the Record’, ‘Volume’).
Our other team concentrates on spatial and architectural projects. The Studio’s direction is moving towards the design of more permanent structures which affect the way people interact with their surroundings on a longer term basis, as well as creating the magical but fleeting installations for which we are known.
Whilst working on projects that are very different in terms of scale, there is without doubt creative cross pollination between the two teams.
At the heart of the practice is the symbiosis between Paul’s dynamic creativity and Joana’s strategic leadership. Surrounded by a dedicated team of specialists, they are capable of delivering highly innovative and varied design across a wide range of business contexts, moving effortlessly between tightly budgeted commercial projects and naturally evolving experimental work.
