London Design Fair 2019 was held at the Old Truman Brewery. It saw different countries from across the world represented by their best and freshest designers. Here are some of our favourite finds from the fair…
Californian-based Melanie Abrantes combines traditional craft techniques with contemporary designs, showcasing the most beautiful cork, timber, and glass bases. Her ink ice method creates an incredible watercolour effect on timber.
Altrock showcased their marble-based terrazzo surfaces which they produce in East London. Where we have previously seen terrazzo as many small chips we see it here as large broken slabs of marble.
Danish company Le Klint collaborate with architects and designers to supply the now iconic pleated lampshade. At the fair we saw their new designs alongside original designs from 1965, highlighting the consistently contemporary nature of the company.
