Kacper Hamilton (b. 1987 London, UK) is a British Artist, Designer, and Creative Director based in London. He studied BA (Hons) Product Design at Central Saint Martins College of Art & Design in London, and completed a Masters in 'Design for Luxury and Craftsmanship' at ECAL, in Switzerland. Hamilton is a visiting lecturer and tutor on the MA Product & Furniture Design course at Kingston University in London, where he specialises in the subject of ‘Curating your own Practice’. Over the years, Kacper Hamilton has developed a unique style, which is inspired by narratives, traditions, and rituals. His interest spans the history, culture, and art of old, with a special fascination for places of worship and sacrosanct articles used therein for specific ceremonies. Hamilton's work draws from his intuitive drive to create modernity by bringing elements of the past into a contemporary context. The notion of storytelling plays a significant role in his creative process, as well as the aspiration to create timeless and mysterious artefacts. His creations have an engineered, monolithic yet refined aesthetic, which are stripped back in detail and minimal in form.
