Behind the scenes with Studio Swine for the new issue of Printed Pages

Over the past few years we’ve swooned at the beautifully designed, endlessly imaginative work of Studio Swine, whose constant experiments in the field of sustainable design seem to yield nothing but desirable results. We became so infatuated in fact, that we decided to run a whole magazine profile on the duo in the Winter issue of Printed Pages, tracking them down to a temporary studio in east London to quiz them about their process and motivations.
They’d just returned from a yachting voyage into the North Atlantic Gyre, where they’d been harvesting plastic and turning it into furniture on board with the help of a custom-made device that remoulds materials with the magnified rays of the sun. Although they’d only been back on solid ground for a few short days, we managed to get them to scrub up for a photo shoot too.
Below are a selection of images from their shoot with photographer Tom Cockram that yielded too many great results to squeeze into our feature – a snapshot of a talented, and let’s face it, very photogenic, pair at work in their one-off workspace.
