Lex Pott

Lex Pott is an Amsterdam-based designer who produces arresting experimental works that fuse natural inspiration with sleek, modern aesthetics. Incorporating both art and function, Pott creates one-of-a-kind pieces that celebrate the raw essence of a material, whether it is wood, metal or stone.

Born in 1985 to artistic parents, Lex Pott was immersed in creativity, production and innovation from a young age. After attending the Design Academy Eindhoven, he began his practice of connecting the principles of design with the use of raw materials – a groundbreaking combination. His graduation project, which included wooden shelves and an oversized stone table, utilized natural materials beginning a dialogue around sustainability and ecology.

Lex Pott ’s True Colors collection incorporated treated metals, panels, shelves, and vases that exposed the exuberance of uncorroded metal; his Diptych collection was a break into organic and geometric shapes; and his Pivot line of silver corner shelves and gold cone embellishment was a streamlined take on classic functionality. But it was the Pivot shelf that caught the eye of Hay, the Danish manufacturer, who picked up the collection in Milan in 2013, a move that catapulted Pott onto the world design stage.

Lex Pott ’s work continues to create innovative designs and one of a kind pieces that push the boundaries of practical design, including his recent creation named La Cornue. A metal oxidized cooker, the piece showed at Milan Design Week 2016 as part of the Chroma collection on show at the ‘Transitions” exhibition. With rivers of marbled blue and bright golden clasps on its exterior, the cooker creates fantasy out of the ordinary. Pott is increasingly distinguished by this ability to bring art and design together in a way that elevates both.

Pott’s maintains an ongoing collaboration with Hay as well as work for &Tradition, Studio Thomas Vailly, and Wallpaper* Handmade. His work has shown at Prometeo Gallery in Milan, Het Nieuwe Institute in Rotterdam, Dutch Design Week in Eindhoven, The Aram Gallery in London, New Window in Eindoven, Museum Artipelag in Gustavsberg, and others.

Lex Pott has been awarded myriad accolades including being named the No.1 Design Talent in the Netherlands by Volkskrant 2015, the winner of the Young Talent Pin selected by Linteloo 2014, and the winner of the AUPING Styling Award public prize in 2012. Pott was also nominated for the MINI Young Designer Award 2013, the D3 contest IM Cologne 2013, the Rene Smeets prize in 2009, the Melkweg prize in 2009, and for the Designhuis Talent award in 2009.
