FLOATING SPHERES FOR SKYPE

SAY HELLO TO ALLAN!
We’ll soon be welcoming an exciting new comrade into the studio… he’s quirky and has an irreverent sense of humour. More will be revealed soon… for now, all we shall declare is his name is Allan and we found him in a corner contemplating the possibility of parachuting cows.
ENDLESS COLOURFUL BALLS ARE FILLING UP THE STUDIO
Endless colourful balls have been filling up the studio… it’s all in aid of an exciting event coming up… we’ll update with all the details soon.

POIETIC: MAKING, PRODUCING, FORMING OF SOMETHING TO BE RECEIVED & ACTED UPON
WHO WE ARE
Poietic is a London based design studio and the partnership of life-long friends Richard Harvey and Keivor John.
WHAT WE DO
Harvey & John like exceeding the boundaries of what is perceived to be possible. Working at the cross-section of invention, design and art they craft a tangible engagement between people, space and objects. Their unique living sculptures and captivating installations provoke curiosity, exploration and a rediscovery of the playful inner child.
WHY WE DO IT
Harvey & John strive to invoke a sense of wonder. Honest, innocent wonder. Their work offers something simple yet exceptional by tapping into people’s fundamental and instinctive human desires that are too often overlooked during the creation of things and spaces.
“Play. Curiosity. Exploration. That’s the mantra behind a whippersnapper of a Brit design company creating moving objects and installations … allows us to reflect on something we cannot ordinarily grasp.”
Craig Jacobs, Sunday Times
“Just wanted to say a huge thank you. Your installations were absolutely hypnotic and mesmerising. So impressive to see them in action. Really beautiful work.”
Sam Bompas, Bompas & Parr
“The Tropism Well may be the most decadent method of serving a glass of water we have ever encountered.”
Philippa Warr, Wired
“Graceful tequila pouring gravity arm. Really beautiful … in fact this has really moved me.”
Valentine Warner, Celebrity Chef
“Not only is it an enchanting installation but a political one, too … turning the way we access drinking water into something special, rather than an act we should simply regard as a right.”
Mark Sinclair, Creative Review
