The theme, set by Design-Nation’s project manager and curator Liz Cooper, is light: luminaries and shadows, glossy and textured surfaces, deep and light hues, and moments of insight and imagination. These all inspire Design-Nation’s expert designers to make exceptional and distinctive furniture, lighting, flooring, wall coverings, ceramics and more, many of which are available to commission.
The team have collaborated with product designer Raw Studio, furniture maker Jonathan Rose and textile innovator Joy Merron, to develop “Green Light” a special installation of contemporary products for interiors that explore lighting and furniture, unusual, recycled and sustainable materials. These new 21st century designs have the potential to become classics, collectable and desirable, innovative and of excellent quality. Alongside three collaborators Design Nation will be joined by Angie Parker Textiles, Charlie Birtles, Harriet Elkerton, design-maker Laura-Jane Atkinson, Sharyn Dunn and Winter & Kurth.
