Rob Southcott will be producing furniture for the PDA for 40 Oaks project.
Rob Southcott’s practice as an artist and designer is driven by a creative sensitivity for observation and synthesis. Seeking the excavation of form and its relationship to function and the social realm, Rob’s work explores the parameters of their reciprocity, collusion and exchange.
Rob creates furniture, lighting, objects, and art pieces that address the potential of form and function as a relational aesthetic exchange. His work draws from the realm of the experiential and the lived. As a creative maker, he finds inspiration in every facet of the material world, transforming observation into novel re-articulations of the known and the familiar. His process-oriented practice summons metaphor and considers the inherent lives of materials and their transformation.
