With a staff complement that has double the ratio of women to men, INHOUSE is firmly in support of female creative energy.
We had such fun this month asking the team to nominate their favourite female creatives, and thought we’d share some of the favourites in case you missed our social posts.
Jessica Lomax | Nike Design Director
As Design Director of Women’s Apparel at Nike Sportswear, Jessica is on top of her game when it comes to designing some of the world’s most sought-after athleisure and activewear.
She is a dynamic personality and her consistently impressive contribution ensures that Nike continues to dominate the world of fashion and design.
Kelly Hoppen | British designer
Kelly Hoppen is one of the most sought-after interior designers in the world. Her iconic career spans 40 years, nine design books, numerous opulent interiors in exotic places, stints on TV and appointment as GREAT ambassador for the UK. She is known for gracefully blending West and East influences, and opulent interiors that still exude warmth.
Neri Oxman | Visionary
Neri creates revolutionary art and architecture that combine design, biology, computing, and materials engineering. She is on a mission to design and build cities with 100% naturally produced building materials.MOMA curator Paola Antonelli called her “a person ahead of her time, not of her time, and author Bruce Sterling called her work “shatteringly different from anything before.
She somehow manages to find the time for her ‘other’ role as professor at the MIT Media Lab, where she leads the Mediated Matter research group.
Zaha Hadid | Architect
Widely recognised for her futuristic buildings, described as a “trailblazing architect” and nicknamed “the Queen of the curve”, Zaha Hadid’s international contribution to modern architecture is legendary.
The Guardian went a step further by proclaiming her “the liberator of architectural geometry”, enabling a “whole new expressive identity”. Zaha was the first woman to receive the Pritzker Architecture Prize, the Stirling Prize 2 years running and was made a Dame by the Queen for her service to architecture.
Mia Widlake | SA interior and product designer
Mia is the creative powerhouse behind Studio 19, a multidisciplinary design agency. The studio produces its own product range, and creates notable interiors using locally-sourced products where possible.
