Born in 1958, Lovegrove studied industrial design at Manchester Polytechnic and at the Royal College of Art in London. At the beginning of the 1980s he started work for Frogdesign, an industrial design consultancy in Germany, where he was assigned to projects for Apple and Sony. Going on to work across Europe, Ross returned to England in 1986 and established his own practice. Since then he has collaborated with some of the world's most outstanding design manufacturers, such as Kartell, Luceplan and Cappellini. He is currently working on a number of projects in Japan where he has gained unparalleled success as a European designer.
Paola Antonelli is Curator for the Department of Architecture and Design at the New York Museum of Modern Art. She has been Contributing Editor for Domus magazine and Design Editor of Abitare. She has lectured at the University of California, Harvard University Graduate School of Design, and has taught across Europe and the United States.
Tokujin graduated from the Kuwasawa School of Design in 1986, where he was tutored by such inspirational figures as Shiro Kuramata and Issey Miyake. After eight years of freelance design, he established Tokujin Yoshioka Design in 2000. His designs have been displayed at the Fondation Cartier, Milano Salone and the Axis Gallery, and are part of the permanent collection at the New York Museum of Modern Art. His work has garnered a host of accolades, including the Award of Excellence from the I.D. Annual Design Review for two years running (2000-1). Greg Lynn is the principal of Greg Lynn Form and has taught throughout the United States and Europe. He is at the forefront of combining design and construction with the theoretical and experimental potentiels of writing, and is a professor at UCLA, Yale University and the University of Applied Arts in Vienna. His architectural designs have received numerous awards and his work is regularly exhibited internationally in both architecture and art museums. He is the author of Folds, Bodies, Blobs: Collected Essays, Animate Form, and the forthcoming Embryological House.
Cecil Balmond's work in the exploration of form has led to success in major competitions, such as for the Victoria & Albert Museum and Imperial War Museum with Daniel Libeskind, the Yokohama Ferry Terminal building with Foreign Office Architects and the CCTV Headquarters building in Beijing with Rem Koolhaas. Cecil teaches at Yale and Harvard, developing a radical programme on the generation of form. He has published Number 9 - The Search for the Sigma Code and Informal, a monograph on his seminal projects. He is a member of the Main Board at Arup.
Adriaan Beukers works as a professor, both in Composite Materials and Structures at the Faculty of Aerospace Engineering at the Delft University of Technology, and in Engineering with Composites at the Materials Department of the Leuven University. He is also director of Research and Development strategies at the Centre for Lightweight Structures. Since 1977 he has worked on the design, analysis and materialization of novel composite structures, with clients including Airbus, Bombardier Boeing and Extra. Adriaan is author of the book Lightness.
Supernatural presents the work of Ross Lovegrove, one of the most interesting and fascinating of the contemporary designers. His work ranges from furniture to high-tech products, from waterbottles to airplane seats, and explores the creation of sculptural and organic shapes using sophisticated technology and materials. In recent years Ross Lovegrove has worked on a design concept that he likes to define as 'organic essentialism', inspired by elements and aesthetics taken from the natural world and reshaped in futuristic forms. His interest in this sort of new naturalism, which he terms 'Supernatural', is accompanied by research into new materials, new applications and new methods of production. This combination of archetypal inspiration and up-to-date technology makes him one of the most interesting and unusual figures in the design world. Written by the designer himself, this is the first book to be dedicated solely to Lovegrove's work. Supernatural is a unique exploration of his mode of design, providing insights into his motivations and approach to the creative process.
