Future Heritage is a must visit at Decorex 2018 as well as in the previous exhibition years. The artists displaying and preparing new collections for the show are not to be missed.
Since its inception at Decorex in 2014, Future Heritage has established itself as the showcase of craft to collect and commission. This year, renowned applied arts and design critic and curator Corinne Julius returns with a carefully selected group of designers and makers who represent the pinnacle of contemporary making.
With alumni including Marcin Rusak, Katie Spragg, Tangent, Peter Marigold, Raw Edges and Max Lamb, the exhibition has proven itself as a launch pad for tomorrow’s stars and the natural home of leading contemporary designers.
You will be able to see the amazing collections of:
Founded by twin sisters Begum and Bike Ayaskan, Studio Ayaskan is a London-based experimental art and design studio focusing on time-based products, spaces, lights, installations and artworks with the experimental and poetic use of materials, technologies and crafts.
Spranger’s current project Aquatopia takes a critical view of our fresh water supplies, its increasing demand and pollution. She uses found objects, including original plumbing parts and laboratory objects and repurposes them using electroforming to create useable sculptures. Katrin is collaborating with Chadder & Co to create a complete sculptural Victorian bath.
Wu’s designs seek to unravel a dialogue between the natural and the man-made. Through clashing and merging wood and resin in different conditions, Wu creates a variety of exquisite boxes. Her work examines what humanity deems valuable, and foregrounds the impact of humans on the Earth.
Shaw investigates radical manufacture in a hands-on way; his interest is in the material associations and perceptions of contemporary and future culture. He has a particular interest in making recycled plastics beautiful and valuable. At Decorex he is creating a fountain, table, stools and vessels in his ‘Plastic Baroque’ series.
He is making a welcome return to Future Heritage after the success of his Flora range in 2015. His new work MRM, has a very different aesthetic. It explores metal and it’s potential for subtle colour. He is producing a coffee table, console, drinks cabinet and vessels for Future Heritage.
