Tom Sloan is an Australian-born and trained industrial designer with built-work ranging from public artworks, interactive design, furniture, products, interiors to lighting. He began at Lab Architecture Studio in Melbourne, where he developed the furniture and interactive components for Federation Square: Australia’s largest cultural and civic development (completed 2002). Since 2003 he works independently and in collaboration with various practices. In 2005 he moved to Europe and became involved in exploring the inter-disciplinary relationship between art and the built-environment. As senior designer at London’s Jason Bruges Studio (2006-2009) he designed and delivered bespoke artworks and interactive design objects for varied clients (Veuve Cliquot, Established & Sons, BBC1,Nike, O2), property developers and architecture firms. Recent works include a new commission for Siemens for the 2012 London Olympics; an ongoing collaboration with the Dusseldorf-based artist-collective, Lonelyfingers (2013-); a public artwork for Argent, developer of London’s Kings Cross (2014) and the winning submission for a new hospital artwork in Bergen, Norway. Sloan’s works are presented in solo and group exhibitions, most recently at Vancouver’s 221A Artist Run Centre (2013) and the Budapest Design Week (2011, 2012, 2013). In parallel to his design practice, in 2010 Sloan co-founded Blood Mountain Foundation, where he is responsible for curation, production and developing new research-and-production based projects.
