Making seemingly impossible accessories possible.

Stewart Wildgoose – Central Saint Martin's, London Stewart Wildgoose is a Fashion Design with Marketing student at Central Saint Martin’s College in London. Inspired by the works of L.S. Lowry and his fascination with the naked human form, he has been developing a range of bags and luggage items. Evocative and thought-provoking by design, they challenge contemporary design as well as our existing perceptions of Lowry himself.

And now Stewart is exploring the medium of vacuum forming. Wildgoose heard about Formech’s machines being used to manufacture bespoke individual art pieces, as well as suitcases available on the market. So, he got in contact to discuss the idea of using a vacuum forming machine to execute his designs, from prototypes through to finished pieces.

“Formech has allowed me to explore and develop accessories which I did not initially think would be possible.”

Inspire welcomed the opportunity to work with such a creative and innovative designer. Our team provided support and expertise to help enable him to complete his design project. He has been invited to the Formech workshop in Harpenden, UK, where he has been offered free access to a range of vacuum forming machines, materials, and the advice and training of engineers and technicians.

Stewart says, “I have been really happy with the results so far and I’m excited to see what else I can make with Formech.” With the support of Inspire, Formech will be working closely with Stewart Wildgoose over the coming months and we can’t wait to see the final products.
