Born in Hildesheim, Germany, Julia Lohmann came to the United Kingdom in 1998 to study on the BA (Hons) Graphic Design course at the Surrey Institute of Art and Design, University College (now the University for the Creative Arts). She graduated in 2001 and won several prizes for her graphic design and product development work. She subsequently completed a two-year MA in Design Products at the Royal College of Art (RCA), London in 2004.
Lohmann set up her own design studio in London in 2004.
Lohmann thinks that you are never too close or removed from the system to really make change. She sees museums as a place where new ideas can be planted and grow. She thinks these spaces should focus on stretching forward–and be a place for research and development.
This project was in reaction to research into man-made constructions that are conquered by nature and destroyed by humans; it’s based on the effects of natural disasters on built structures. The series is a Reversal of what qualities are normally associated with certain man-made and natural materials. The concrete is cast onto a wool backing and subsequently broken up. This design process harnesses the effects of deterioration and the wool holds the concrete together. The resulting series is a range of unique pieces based on a single mold.
