Curated by designer Jethro Macey, One Year On brings together products tipped to be iconic designs of the future.
Designers in their first year of business were chosen for the showcase following a rigorous selection process. This year’s line-up includes taxidermy-inspired ceramics and unisex brooches based on Mexican Cavalry insignia.
Director of Trend Bible Joanna Feeley said: “One Year On is a brilliant reflection of the trends we’re seeing for 2014 and is a must for retailers and shoppers alike. In 2014, there will be a focus on bold exaggerated shapes, as seen in Grace Hamilton’s oversized chunky necklaces. We’re also seeing a trend for products that have a tactile quality and contrast natural with synthetic, such as Ben Esthop’s wood and acrylic bowls and Leigh Cameron’s furniture which blends wood with concrete.”
More than 3,000 of the UK’s most talented and innovative design graduates will be showcased under one roof at New Designers 2013, the 28th instalment of the event. For more information visit www.newdesigners.com/oneyearon
