Carter Blackwell


Inspired by sustainable design and with a background in furniture, landscape and industrial design, Carter is exploring opportunities for a new human relationship to nature and energy. He is developing alternative tools for enhancing energy efficiency that simultaneously empower the individual user in managing and maintaining their own comfort level in the home and workplace by creating for them a position of responsibility and action. His concept is to encourage end-user awareness of, and active control over, their immediate environment.

A combination of sensory and climate design, Carter's work enhances the experience of human interaction with natural resources, such as the sun and the wind, working towards a combination of visual beauty and practical interaction.
