Wendy Legro



I’ve just discovered Wendy Legro, a recent graduate from the Eindhoven Design Academy. Wendy’s work reflects a keen interest in natural forms and textures and it is this organic quality that I love about her work. Shown here is the Orchid, a web of orchid shaped forms that could be used as a screen or decorative textile. The second image is of her beautiful hot water bottle cover – not an item often associated with stunning design, but in this case one of the most aesthetically pleasing and useful home accessories I’ve seen in a long time. Legro designed it so that the form fits the natural curves of the human body and the bottle cover is made from felt, which spreads heat gradually.
