Harry Trimble, Product Miles Cheese Grater

Our Creative of the Week is University of Brighton graduate Harry Trimble, a ‘hands-on’ designer working in London. When designing, Harry carefully considers the mileage the product has both in terms of how much use the user gets out of it as well as the global distances covered to produce it.

Harry Trimble, Plumbers Masher

Why we like him:

Harry explores the themes of sustainability, economics, local production and provenance in his designs. He uses locally sourced materials and the skills of local professionals to create his products.

Speaking about his Product Miles Cheese Grater, Harry tells us:

The project engages people to consider the global distance everyday objects travel before they even buy them. By creating a cheese grater from materials from within a 20 mile radius of Brighton and contrasting it against an imported grater produced in the Far East, I highlight the intangible existence of product miles.

What are your future prospects?

Over the next year or so my aim is to be employed by a studio, so I can develop my skills as a designer and continue to work independently with different partners exploring the themes of sustainability, economics and local production. After that my hope is to study at the Royal College of Art.

How can interested parties contact you?

If someone wanted to get in touch, they can simply find my email and phone number through my website. The projects that we could work together on could range from developing a product for a brand or studio to creating a one-off piece for an exhibition or retail space.
