Committee Designers

Born in Northampton and London respectively and trained at the Liverpool Art School, Clare Page and Harry Richardson claim that they explore the everyday with a mixture of “pragmatism and imagination”. At their studio, the designers hoard thousands of objects bought in street markets and antiques shops: a colorful assortment of pottery animals, figurines, boxes, vases and other bric-a-brac.
Committee works with the concept that these objects, which supposedly have already fulfilled the function they were created for, take on a new life. That is how they came up with, among other creations, their celebrated “kebab” lamps. These original compositions are a kind of “collage” of various ornaments that find an unusual, extraordinary type of beauty without moving away from the everyday. The spirit of the designs of this duo fits in to perfection with the philosophy of Re-Cyclos, for which nothing is destroyed and everything is transformed as it acquires a new meaning.
