Charlotte Kingsnorth at Designersblock London 2010

September 16, 2010

Charlotte Kingsnorth is a London based designer who uses her furniture to narrate the world as she sees it, conjuring up thought provoking ideas which push accepted boundaries and values.

Charlotte feels that the objects we surround ourselves with should be functional but also serve their purpose to be loved, adored and imprint personality upon their surroundings. Graduated from Buckinghamshire University in 2009 with a BA (Hons) in Contemporary Furniture Design, Charlotte has since exhibited her award winning furniture in shows and galleries internationally.

As the name suggests, Hybreed is a crossbreed of furniture evolved from the At One series, which was produced previously by Kingsnorth and inspired by the relationship between a sofa and the voluptuous flesh of its obese occupier. Kingsnorth, the metamorph, picks reclaimed chairs and transforms them into different curvaceous characters and forms depending on the frames they envelope.
