Edward Linacre's engagement in the principles of design ranges in scale from the global to the most intimate. In design, he is aware of the emotional connection people make with their favourite domestic objects, and he brings to that a consciousness of environmental, social and cultural concerns. He aims to develop appropriate, responsible and elegant design solutions. Edward Linacre graduated from Industrial Design at Swinburne University in 2010 with First Class Honours and has been working for a Melbourne consultancy for the past three years. Recently establishing his own business he consults to clients from Medical to Homewares industries, and his own lighting designs retail throughout Australia and New Zealand. Edward spent a semester studying Product Design in Germany where he won the HAWK Hildesheim University furniture design prize. This led to a 6 month internship at internation al consultancy wiege Entwicklungsgesllschaft mbH. He has since received numerous national and international accolades for his work, ranging from furniture to product design engineering, notably the Design Institute of Australia Graduate of the Year Award (Victoria and Tasmania) in 2011, and in the same year, the prestigious James Dyson Award (Worldwide).
