About

Kent’s design philosophy highlights the need for renewable resources through an approach to process that carries the sentiment of ‘good design should last forever, but needn’t last forever in the environment’. The questioning of consumer needs has allowed me to develop works that factor in the whole-of-life cycle of a product, from its material origin and benefits, biodegradability and recyclability, while exploring a conceptual approach to form and object. As a multi-disciplined environmentally-aware designer, working across the areas of product, furniture and graphic design this enables me to produce work that goes beyond the ephemeral and aesthetic, placing importance on practical and necessary outcomes.
