UNESCO Cities of Design

A device designed by Dominic Wilcox allows the wearer to see ‘one foot taller’ (30.5cm) than their normal eye level.

“I was standing at a gig and turned to see a small woman dancing away but unable to see the band. This gave me the inspiration to design a way for people to see over obstacles such as tall people like me.”

Dominic Wilcox works between the worlds of art, design, craft and technology to create innovative, thought-provoking and surprising objects. 

The British artist and designer studied at The Royal College of Art, graduating in 2002. He exhibits his work internationally and has been commissioned by brands such as BMW MINI, Kelloggs and Paul Smith.

His work includes the world’s first GPS shoes, a stained glass driverless sleeper car of the future, and tiny sculptures balanced on the hands of watches.
