Loughborough University had strong stand this year with Laura Melhuish-Sprague winning the Harlequin award, with her designs inspired by venetian watercolour paintings. Ruth Hepburn work was also one that we loved, with her very delicate woven project.

John McNair had a very interesting product which is described best with his words ‘A multidisciplinary approach to material experimentation has allowed me to explore the combination of textiles, glass, metal and architectural elements. This experimentation developed my understanding of the qualities and behaviour of these diverse materials’

There was also some pigs…

New Designers is a great place to show genius and innotive designs, graduates have the oppurtunity within there studies to really pursue something they feel passionate about, this is shown with Karoline Healy’s ‘Domestic Mining’ where upon her kiosk you could create your very own watch, with her flat pack design.
