S1E17 : Sean Dougall & Andrew Paulson on growing and developing their design practice, the challenges of weaving with metal, what inspires them to keep exploring, and more.

This week we are speaking with the Sean Dougall and Andrew Paulson of the design studio Dougall Paulson, based out of Southern California.

As co-founders of the multi-disciplinary art and design studio, they seek beauty through new forms of weaving, furniture, lighting and objects. Using narrative as the thread that binds ideas together, their unique take on visual storytelling is the starting point for the creation of objects that straddle the fine, decorative, and graphic arts. They approach their practice with a focus on curiosity and discovery. Specifically speaking about their handwoven work: the art textiles explore the ways in which light appears through absorption, reflection, and transparency. Which, under the right lights, look like the pieces are glowing internally. 

We hope you enjoy our conversation about how they grew and developed their design practice, the challenges of weaving with metal, and what inspires them to keep exploring and moving forward.
