Johnson Tiles Keynote, Clerkenwell Design Week

Material Lab invited Katie Treggiden to host a live event at Clerkenwell Design Week – part four of their studio partner, Johnson Tiles‘ Making it Beautifully series of RIBA accredited CPDs. Katie’s presentation “Beauty Reversed: The ugly truth about waste” asked designers to consider beauty in the context of how beautifully a material performs, for how long and its impact on the environment.

The keynote speech was followed by a hands-on waste workshop led by surface designer Olivia Aspinall, member of Katie Treggiden’s private membership group Making Design Circular. Olivia guided attendees through the process of transforming discarded tiles into terrazzo art.
