GLÜCK BY NAOMI PAUL
Designed by Naomi Paul, the Omi pendant collection, GLÜCK, HANNA and SONNE are a series of handcrafted minimal flat pack pendants that evolved from the desire to create lighting that is timeless, playful and quietly opulent.

INCALMI BY CHIARA ONIDA
Incalmi’s hand-made Incalmi sets are designed by Chiara Onida. The collection includes carafe, wine glass and water glass, which produce a variety of sounds when the liquid is poured into and out of the vessels. The colour and clear glass are produced using the Venetian technique called "Incalmo" where two elements with different colours are blown together into a single object.

WICKER LAMPS BY THE ANDES HOUSE
The lamps LA and LD are two models of suspension lighting that were designed as objects that could contain and filter light as a result of the weaving technique incorporated. Depending on the density of the wicker cordage that is used, either more opaque of more translucent, different shades of light can be produced.
HAVEN BY ALLERMUIR
Haven by Allermuir creates just what its name implies: a private and intimate “haven” for conversation or for contemplation. Haven is a modular soft seating system, which includes sofas, stools, tables and screens; it provides a comfortable retreat and productive work environment — at the same time.
SKY TRAIL BY LEE BORTHWICK
Exploring the fine balance where man and nature meet, work and battle together is an integral part of Lee’s research as an artist. He builds walls, landscapes, patterns and furniture echoing the geometric patterns and repetition of materials seen in contemporary architecture whilst reflecting on nature's enduring presence in the landscape.
ROPE GROWN BY HEATHER GILLESPIE
“Influenced by the fishing trade, my new collection entitled 'Rope Grown' questions the impact that fishing has on our environment. Seeing mussels and oysters being grown on hand-made coconut rope gave me the inspiration to create this body of work to make people aware of this sustainable way of sea fishing.”
ACERO CLOCK BY MICHAEL SINEY
Made from a single piece of laser cut steel, Acero is an understated and unpretentious clock that reflects Michael’s simplistic approach to his work. The original unfinished version reveals machine marks and scratches that add value and uniqueness to each clock.

EVENT REVIEW:
100% DESIGN 2011
If there was a theme to this year’s 100% Design, it was encapsulated in the opening seminar chaired by design critic Justin McGuirk, which posed the timely question: is design post-national? With a particular focus, naturally, on Britain, the panel of designers and architects discussed what it means to be a British designer in this day and age, how it is perceived by other nationalities and whether British design has its own ‘essence’, especially when compared to more readily defined notions of, for example, Scandinavian or Dutch design.
