Bonadea
Readers can expect an introduction to the Botanique tableware collection created in collaboration with French ceramic designer and artist Marie Daage. Each piece within the line is hand painted in France and themed on the typical flora and fauna of spring – summertime. A hugely poignant collection for the pair, the designs are meant to evoke a feeling of freshness and rejuvenation as we shake off the uncertainty of the last 18 months. In addition, Bonadea founder, Gemma Martinez de Ana will be on hand to run through the design detailing of the store and artisans behind it.

Collier Webb
In conversation with Collier Webb’s Design Team: Join Collier Webb for an evening of succinct and insightful sessions as the Design Team demonstrate and talk you through their creative process from concept to product. 

Carl Hansen & Son
Carl Hansen & Søn hosts a demonstration in their flagship London store reflecting on the modern and timeless, spotlighting their classic Wishbone Chair in a new contemporary colour.

One of the brand’s skilled craftspeople from Denmark showcases how the seat of this classic design is handwoven in paper cord. The elegant CH24 is presented in a muted blue hue, inspired by nature, and has both a tactile and timeless feel. All Wishbone chairs will be signed by the maker and are available for immediate purchase.

The Edward Barnsley Trust x de Le Cuona
The Edward Barnsley Workshop presents a new Easy Chair design developed in association with Bernie de Le Cuona. Several Easy Chair designs exist in the Edward Barnsley archives, created in the 1950s: these Arts & Crafts designs were a starting point for the new design. Meet James Ryan, designer at the Edward Barnsley Workshop, and textile specialist Bernie de Le Cuona and hear how they created the chair by innovating new jointing techniques and selecting a robust Attenborough wool linen fabric from de Le Cuona’s new Studio range, to ensure a new approach to this historic collaboration.

OCHRE
Ochre’s Founders offer an introduction to the new collection of Ochre Wild rugs, which are made entirely by hand, from the yarn-making and dying to the intricate weaving, through to the finishing. They use the same rich variety of fibres and natural dyes for both their Indo-Tibetan and flat-weave Dhurrie rugs. The process is endlessly fine-tuned and adjusted to achieve a luminescence and radiance that achieves an unbeatable vibrancy and nuance that is unmatched by synthetics.
