“I’ve always had a bit of an interest in vinyl and music in general. I thought that this turntable would be something different. I wracked my brains for a while, thinking what hasn’t already been at New Blades and what could potentially stand out. I wanted to make something really high quality.
I used marble-type materials to give it the feel of quality. In terms of turntables and records players, the majority of the time, if it’s got visual weight to it, it looks like a quality piece.
The building is a design from Fosters, they wanted me to do it for my external brief. I worked there previously, on a year out, for an eight-month period. It was amazing. I can’t even begin to explain how much I learnt. I worked on a larger scale version of one of these buildings, and it was my favourite project.”
