COLLECTIBLE DESIGN – ARTISTRY MEETS ENGINEERING
Guest speakers: Staffan Tollgård, founder, Tollgard, and Simon Brown and Jessica Barrington, The Refined Workshop
Chair: Charlotte Abrahams
Design that pushes the limits of a material can be elevated to the status of functional sculpture. Find out how a designer and pioneering stonemasons discovered a shared love of marble, authentic craft and design excellence, and how this led to an extraordinary collection of precious marble furniture. Achieving incredible complexity with apparent simplicity, these new pieces demonstrate the coming together of artistry, engineering and creativity, showing the heights that design can reach when a specialist workshop meets an inquiring mind.
