Rowan turnham and matthew harding
‘I try to find ways to improve what’s already out there by reassessing how it works and how people interact with it.’ – Rowan
Emerging designers Rowan and Matthew may be young, but their vision is clear – push to create products that are true to their purpose.
Through working with Rakumba, Rowan and Matthew were able to commercialise EXO. This enabled the young designers to establish their name and put themselves on the radar by participating in the Melbourne Movement in Milan in 2015.
Both Rowan and Matthew remain conscious of their works’ footprint on the environment, with lots of consideration given to the way products are manufactured. It’s evident in EXO that the pair put a lot of importance on celebrating the materials they use instead of attempting to conceal them – which makes them a perfect fit for Rakumba.
