David Weatherhead's Primary Clocks

The exhibition examines the process of the object; The perception that each object has a purpose and meaning to it, without the user aware of the story that each object is born from. The show will also focus on the work and process of London based product designer David Weatherhead. David's objects have an inherent easily identifiable quality with inspiration and interest points taken from everything from the Bauhaus to a road safety sign to a triangular back reflector on a trailer.

Weatherhead has been exploring his interest in "the everyday and the design of objects with a particular gesture and semantic" for clients such as Seletti, DesignMarketo and, of course, GOODD since he completed his MA in Design Products at RCA in 2007. "A Product of Geometry" also includes hanging works by Sophie Cheung. MXYPLYZYK.

Gadgets. Quirky. Portable solar chargers are often strong enough for cell phones and MP3 players, but when it comes to serious electronics such as the laptop, that you can’t do without even in the wilderness, they can’t cope.

Even the pros struggle. After his $1,200 laptop got "totally fried" in a spill of red wine jus, Joseph Gillard, executive chef at the Napa Valley Grille in Los Angeles, knew he needed a cheaper yet more-reliable way to access his 250 recipes in the kitchen.
