Lex Pott is an independent autonomous designer based in Amsterdam. He graduated Cum Laude at the Design Academy Eindhoven. Lex Pott allows nature to play it's part in design and he investigates a material from its origins all the way through to production and end use. His work explores the boundaries between art and design, function and story, object and imagination. He would like to keep this experimental formula of working as long as it creates unexpected results. As a starting point, he use raw materials from nature as the basis of his work. There is also an uncontrolled part in his designs and a rational geometric part. The tension between all these aspects should be in perfect harmony otherwise it just doesn’t work. An interesting collaboration Pott did with David Derksen is called Transience: it shows the beauty of the natural oxidizing process of mirrors.
