Future Heritage at Decorex

Future Heritage, wonderfully curated by Corinne Julius, was undoubtedly one of the highlights of Decorex this year. Showcasing the work of a talented group of designers and makers working in various materials including ceramics, glass, metal, textiles, wood and plastic it featured a diverse collection of beautiful one-off pieces.

Hitomi Hosono's sculpted bowls (above), based on the design of a simple leaf she found in her garden, had a delicacy and level of detail that was just exquisite.

Michael Eden's work explores the abstract qualities of ceramic containers, offering up familiar forms as 3D printed objects.

But it was Danish designer Ane Christensen's 'Crumbling' bowl, made of black patinated copper into which hundreds of tiny holes had been drilled, that I most wanted to take home with me. Quite beautiful.
