ABOUT GLEN BAGHURST
Glen Baghurst studied industrial design in Melbourne. Later in Sweden he worked for Apocalypse Labotek and worked closely with Mats Theselius. He lives and works in Australia and Sweden, where he has his designs made in manufactories.
“Some of my design language and appreciation for materials and process came through Mats, but my previous impression of Scandinavian design has changed, because its modern designers are twisting its original values. I do this by maximizing scale; minimalism is usually about reduction. I blow things up.”
