We’ll be building on the success of our first showcase in 2016, featuring a multidisciplinary selection of the best makers working in Scotland today. Our exhibiting makers work across ceramics, lighting, glass, mixed media, furniture and textiles.
When you visit our pavilion you will discover the inventive and unorthodox glass sculptures of Shaun Fraser, Juli Bolaños-Durman and Harry Morgan, alongside carefully crafted ceramics from Fiona Byrne-Sutton and Patricia Shone. We’re debuting furniture by Hynd and Halliday and new and fascinating work from Bespoke Atelier, Tom Pigeon and Inches Carr Trust bursary winner Lynne MacLachlan. Revel in bold textiles by Heather Shields, Hilary Grant and Mariam Syed, rejoice in meticulously designed furniture by Jonathan Pang and Namon Gaston, and bask in the glow of beautiful lighting by Yellow Broom, Carrie Fertig and Kate Colin.
All of the makers' work is presented on a show-stopping custom-made stand designed by award-winning Scottish design studio, GRAS. GRAS were awarded won the prestigious Grand Prix award at The Drum’s Scottish Design Awards for their design of The Scotland: Craft & Design pavilion in 2016.
Held at the Truman Brewery in the creative heart of East London, the London Design Fair is the four-day industry event that is the highlight of the annual London Design Festival. The Fair brings together 500 exhibitors from 28 countries, including independent designers, established brands, international country pavilions and galleries. It attracts over 27,000 influential retailer buyers, architects, interior designers, press, designers and design-savvy public. Exhibitors showcase furniture, lighting, interior textiles, materials and conceptual installations from around the world.
In 2016 the reception for the Scotland: Craft & Design pavilion was immense. The makers and the pavilion generated media coverage in the Guardian, Financial Times, Crafts Magazine and Elle Decoration, to name a few. Following the show, over half of our makers reported press coverage, made links with new buyers and stockists, and more than a third gained new gallery representation.
