Our favourite things from Design Week.
Benchmark for everything they do and for how long they've done it.
Hannah James - because her bowls are extraordinarily beautiful.
(oh and she is the assistant to Edmund de Waal)
Claire Brewster - for whimsy and minute attention to detail.
Pinch - because this bench will be ours (if I can convince Ed of its merits) and because as a husband and wife team, their work is far more than the sum of the parts.
Sidsel Dorph-Jensen - because these silver pots are the kinds of things you would have forever, probably not very useful, but very, very beautiful.
Another Country - because I like the way they turn the notion of 'craft' back to its original meaning - and their furniture is useful and lovely to look at.
Ochre - because even walking on their stand makes me feel like a nervous schoolgirl, and because they use traditional materials to create unexpected beauty.
