Vert might be the French word for green but environmental design is only part of what occupies this progressive industrial design studio. Headed by Andrew Simpson, recent projects have included a flat pack self assembly rowing boat for the Balmain Boat Company, a range of glassware made from recycled solar panels for Established & Sons, and a collaboration with artist Maria Fernanda Cardoso which saw them use high powered microscopes to capture images of insect genitalia before creating scaled up models using 3D printers.
