Objects, spaces, futures

 

Rachel Harding Studio

 

Rachel Harding Studio is a product and spatial design studio based in east London. The studio has a particular interest in reinventing everyday objects. With an experimental approach to colour and material, the studio works to create  minimal designs with a playful twist. Rachel works with luxury brands, manufacturers, galleries and clients, initiating new ideas and experiments within commercial settings.

Central to Rachel’s practice is the idea that we can use an understanding of the future to design for the present, creating designs for the near now.  Every project starts with a radical rethink  and in-depth research, collaborating closely with clients and investigating future trends to create solutions that are unexpected and extraordinary.

Rachel has worked closely with a wide range of clients to create bespoke commissions, installations, spaces, and commercial products. She has exhibited her work at selected galleries, including the V&A, The Aram Gallery, Apalazzo Gallery, Droog Gallery, and the Bröhan-Museum. She is currently a Creative in Residence at The Hospital Club, London. Previous to setting up her London Studio, Rachel worked as the in-house designer for conceptual design company Droog in the Netherlands and as an Architect for London based practice AOC. She is a graduate of the Royal College of Art and Cambridge University. Rachel regularly gives talks and lectures, she currently runs a studio at The Cass School of Art, and is a visiting lecturer at LCC and Westminster University.
