Rogan Gregory Interview at Wallpaper.com

Hot on the heels of a feature in Wallpaper*'s EcoEdit, designer Rogan Gregory (the guy behind Loomstate and Edun -- that's him on the left) sat down for an interview with the style and design mag. He talks about what it's like to work with Bono and wife Ali Hewson, as he did with Edun, combining high fashion with social equity in Africa, about which he says, "We are pushing though, wherever we go, to create sustainability." Rogan's line of bespoke industrial-style furniture and objects, Rogan Objects, is also a topic of discussion, allowing the designer to elaborate on his personal design and sustainability values. "I am definitely aesthetic-oriented. If I don’t like the way the way something looks but it’s super-eco, I don’t give a shit. It’s got to look nice," he says. "I’m just not so extreme and I don’t expect people to be so extreme. I expect people to buy things for the way they look. I don’t count on people to do it out of the goodness of their heart, I don’t think you can." Yeah, we know this stuff is more expensive than conventional alternatives, but when it comes to looking good when walking the walk, not to mention Rogan's part in helping create a new green cultural zeitgeist, it doesn't get much better.
