Portrait of Ronnie Lacham

“The whole is greater than the sum of its parts.”

I’m a designer by training, I think in terms of creative patterns and relationships between form and narrative. I play in the space in-between research and practice, always moving between what we think and create, and what we experience.

My work has evolved over time. Initially driven by questions of form, materials and use, I now spend more time thinking about systems and collaboration. How do we design and engage and bring into being processes that truly transform humankind’s greatest challenges? I like to think we already have most of the parts of the puzzle; it’s a question of which way we put the parts together for the greater whole.
