Pascal runs the Interior Behaviours platform in the second year. This platform puts concepts, ideas and alternative thinking first, looking at how design can affect human behaviour and vice versa.

Pascal Anson is a British designer and artist who graduated from RCA Design Products in 2000. “I have always loved making and breaking things to find out how they work, behave and can change". His key areas of interest are making and construction, simplification and delivery and also social design.

  • Fine Dying

    Fine Dying: The deceased’s ashes are compressed into a diamond, 1 lux travels through it. The purpose is to encourage contemplation as the light is refracted around the room through the deceased.

Looking at how the world works or how it looks are central to Pascal's practice and inspiration. The largest thing he has designed is a jumbo jet whose length is 70,670mm, the smallest thing a business card which is 88mm long. He is trying to design something smaller, possibly a button or an ear ring… Larger than a Jumbo......?

“Concept or idea comes first and aesthetics follow, this is mainly because I am driven to change how we see something or interact with it. I design furniture, graphics, products, lighting, spaces, cars, interiors and planes. Each design tries to challenge by asking you to stop and think again, differently. Most of my work output is three dimensional and the artefact is often more important than the image. A resourceful attitude and way of working is key to me but so is fun, playfulness and sometimes magic.”
