Tom Harper is a young designer exhibiting as part of a group of graduates from Edinburgh College of Art under the name ‘Ready to Ship’. As the designer says:
“This range explores the overlooked potential in objects that are often perceived as a staple household requirement. Cleaning tools presented the ideal medium to explore the concept due to their utilitarian necessity and complex inter-relationships. As a result this offered great potential for improvement. The outcomes are a reinterpretation of these objects, mixing high tech manufacturing processes and traditionally crafted elements with the aim of transforming them into luxury home accessories.”
