PostlerFerguson at Ventura Lambrate

April 6, 2011


PostlerFerguson are a London based multidisciplinary design consultancy that works with an extensive network of designers, filmmakers, artists and manufacturers. Ian Ferguson and Martin Postler founded the studio in 2007 after their graduation from the RCA. One of their first projects was a window for Selfridges store in Oxford Street curated by Designersblock. For this occasion they produced a 1:1 replica of the Concorde engine in cardboard and Styrofoam.

Ian says in the Blueprint magazine: ‘I couldn’t design a chair, it would be very hard, I’m like: Eames chair. Fine. Done. I don’t just want to make it a bit different. ‘It’s more interesting to make a difference in the way design works. It’s a bunch of constraints – what do people want, how much does it cost to make this, where can it be made, where does it get shipped to? You are always juggling all these different elements. It’s about how you can connect things that are really disconnected.’ Postler adds: ‘It feels at the moment that there is saturation in the case of products and the way they are designed. The only constant seems to be an economic one.’
