Stye Radar | September

With so much happening in the design world this month it's difficult to know where to start with September's Style Radar post. London Design Festival seems to get bigger and better each year and I'm not even going to attempt to provide a round up of the mindboggling number of events taking place - (Katie at Confessions of a Design Geek has put together an excellent guide if you need a helping hand wading through it all).

Instead here's a quick edit of just a few of the products, events and launches that have made it onto my radar this month.

1. SHIFT - Designs from Mexico

I'm slightly obsessed with my rapidly expanding succulent collection at the moment and in need of new pots. These concrete planters (above) by SHIFT who are based in Monterrey, Mexico caught my eye. They'll be on show in the International Pavilions at 100% Design.

2. Kate Farley adds new designs to her Plot to Plate range

Birmingham based artist, printmaker and textile designer Kate Farley, whose designs I've previously featured on Design Hunter, has extended her Plot to Plate collection with a number of new designs that will be presented at Tent London. They include her first wallpaper in the 'Hanbury' pattern (above) - a design inspired by the gardens of Hanbury Hall in Worcestershire.

3. Ten by Two

Hannah Dipper and Robin Farquhar, the designers behind People Will Always Need Plates, have released a new series of limited edition enamelware bowls that they will be showing at Vessel Gallery during LDF.

Ten by Two consists of three collections and includes designs inspired by the work of artists and designers including Oscar Niemeyer, Norman Foster and Bridget Riley.

The event details are here.

4. Seams by Benjamin Hubert for Bitossi Ceramiche

Also at the Vessel Gallery is the UK launch of Benjamin Hubert's new 'Seams' collection for Bitossi Ceramiche - a  series of colourful vessels in which the seams from the moulds they have been cast in remain visible as a subtle feature.

5. New design brand Tiipoi launch at Design Junction

And finally, I'm looking forward to discovering Tiipoi - a new design brand offering a collection of objects for daily life manufactured in India using materials such as brass, wood, copper and stone.

Launching at Design Junction the collection will soon be available to buy exclusively at Harrods. Tiipoi will also be presenting the spectacular Mirror 6 (shown above) as part of the  exhibition 'Space and Light' at the Sir John Soane's Museum.
