Design-Nation, a portfolio representing some of the UK’s most acclaimed designers and craftspeople are presenting thirteen fantastic exhibitors at this year’s Decorex.
Showing original work and new collections on the theme of ‘Design Signatures’ including ceramics, furniture, silver-smithing, textiles and wall-based artworks.
Previously unseen, nine of their thirteen exhibitors are new to Decorex this year, with the other four creating ambitious new collections that build on previous successes. In all cases the processes and materials employed are striking illustrations of our exhibitors’ individual design signatures.
Sculptural works and decorative stems by silversmiths Alex O’Connor and Josephine Gomersall sit alongside BAKKA’s knitted throws inspired by the traditions of Shetland; handmade ceramic vessels and tableware by Caroline Couzens; subtle jacquard weaves for interiors by KULU; Bauhaus-inspired handwoven hangings and throws by Pamela Print, innovative tile solutions by Piccolpasso Handmade Tiles; sleek ceramic lighting by Speckled Grey; and Julie Vernon’s tonal and textural mosaic panels.
