Designers exhibiting their collections reflective of brutalism include Emma Johnson who has re-interpreted the trend in ‘Atro-City’ by incorporating heavy forms and asymmetrical proportions into her designs for tea sets.
HAME by Lewis Macleod, pairs traditional handicraft with modern manufacturing technologies to create contemporary furniture and homeware, including a zero waste interior range.
Designer Megan Falconer creates her own silversmithing tools and casts found objects from her surrounding landscape to craft individual silver vessels including the whisky set pictured above.
Benjamin Craven uses screen-printing and digital techniques to create his signature style prints.
Adopting the heavy use of geometric lines and array of clashing colours and patterns, the illustrator embodies contemporary aesthetics to push boundaries.
Patrick Kendal’s Spring Oven is a unique terracotta design that steam-bakes bread, helping bakers achieve professional standard loaves with their home ovens.
Song Wang’s collection of statement necklaces and bracelets entitled ‘Emotion Dialogue’ is made from a combination of heat sensitive materials and acrylic, so that when the wearer experiences strong emotions the jewellery changes colour to reflect this.
