For two weeks in June I had the pleasure of working alongside Ben and the lovely ladies of Curve Interior Design. By working closely with and assisting the designers with product sourcing, sample ordering and helping to create sample scheme trays for some of Curve’s current projects, I was given great insight into the world of contemporary and cutting edge design. Furthermore, I was given the opportunity to sit in on meetings with suppliers such as Pierre Frey and JAB and Alma, which I found particularly interesting for it allowed me to broaden my understanding and knowledge of current top designers as well giving me a clearer eye for the Summer Trends of 2015.
As well as working within the office, Gabbie and I visited Manchester Art Gallery to see their fantastic exhibition – ‘House Proud’, an interesting show which exhibited many design classics which we were able to relate to our current work today. We were thus asked to write a report for Curve’s website about what we saw and our general experience of the show as a whole. By doing this, we were able to concentrate particularly on the development and progression of art and design for the home environment through a range of pieces, exploring a variety of glass, ceramics and metalwork’s – constructing interesting observations.

My experience working with Curve was hugely fulfilling and it was great fun working within a team and I feel very lucky to have had the opportunity. I feel I have learnt lots in two weeks, not only from design awareness but also from a musical point of view… My knowledge of music has been largely expanded through Key 103’s none other than ‘Top 10 at 10’…
Thank you so much for having me!!
