The New Craftsmen presents Processing Lichen, an exclusive new collection of patinated bronze furniture by industrial artist and designer Charlotte Kingsnorth. The exhibition continues until 29 June.

Featuring bold, architectural forms, this new collection showcases Charlotte’s pioneering lichen patina finish inspired by organic fungi, in which layers of chemicals and pigments are applied to heated bronze to create a rich and expressive surface.

The new capsule collection includes a high console table, low coffee table and wall mirrors presented alongside other makers’ works co-curated by Charlotte, creating a world of furniture, artworks and decorative accessories which are in dialogue with Charlotte’s unique centrepieces.

Join The New Craftsmen at their Mayfair store on Thursday 9 May for a panel discussion exploring how craft patronage enables innovation with Kit Kemp (Design Director, Firmdale), Tord Boontje (Industrial Designer), Janice Blackburn (former Curator of Contemporary Craft and Design at Sotheby's) and Charlotte Kingsnorth. Limited tickets available, for details on how to purchase visit and search for ‘The New Craftsmen’.

The exhibition continues until Saturday 29 June.
