Design Signatures: a bold new craft showcase by Design-Nation at Decorex
Design-Nation presents thirteen fantastic designers at Decorex 2020, showing original work and new collections on the theme of ‘Design Signatures’.
Our designer members have been working across the UK from Cornwall to the Shetlands to produce new work to exhibit at Decorex this year including ceramics, furniture, silver-smithing, textiles, and wall-based artworks.
Nine of our 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 their individual design signatures.
Those new to the show include silversmiths Alex O’Connor and Josephine Gomersall whose decorative vessels and stems will sit alongside BAKKA’s Shetlands-inspired knitted throws; handmade ceramics tableware and lighting by Caroline Couzens and Speckled Grey; weaves for interiors by KULU and Pamela Print; tile solutions by Piccolpasso; and Julie Vernon’s mosaic panels.
Collections of new work on display by former exhibitors include a new collection of handmade steam-bent wooden furniture by Angus Ross; sculptural ceramics by Katherine Staples; illustrative textiles and wallpapers by Susannah Weiland and a new collection of dramatic embroidered home accessories by Jacky Puzey.
Our exhibitions producer Helen Kemp notes: ‘We are so proud of what is being created by our designers this year, imaginative and bold work that brings us beauty and hope in this turbulent time. Being part of Decorex yet again has allowed us to come together as a group and feel connected through these long time partners to the wider design sector. The talented designers, makers and interior professionals are the lifeblood of our industry, and are what makes this show a magical part of the year’.
This year for the first time ever Decorex will take place online from 17-19 November as a virtual event. Trade registration is here. If you are not trade, please visit our own showcase microsite to meet the exhibitors and see their new collections, accessible to all.
