Sebastian Wrong and Richard Woods

Artist Richard Woods is a graduate of The Slade School of Fine Art. His well-documented work crosses boundaries between art, architecture and design and is most often made up of exaggerated, garish representations of traditional British architectural and interior motifs like wooden flooring, chintz wallpapers, crazy paving or red bricks. These ‘logos of reality’ are created using traditional woodblock techniques and then applied to walls as a second skin covering interior floors, walls and recently an entire residential building in upstate New York. In these instances, Woods’s art expresses an extreme version of Englishness by taking over a space and saturating it with iconography. Woods continues to win prestigious commissions and exhibits around the world.

Sebastian Wrong studied sculpture at Norwich School of Art before forming his own manufacturing company in 1996 and later co-created the The Lane design brand that ran for four years. He designed the Spun Light in 2002 (now produced by Flos) and is a founding member and Design Director of Established & Sons. He also teaches Design Product at the Royal College of Art.

Sebastian’s extensive knowledge of manufacturing processes and materials, as well as his passion for quality product fabrication, are essential components of his Wrong Shop mission.
