Scotland Craft & Design Pavilion: Scotland's top designer/makers assemble for London Design Fair

Following the standout success of Scotland: Craft & Design Pavilion at 2016 London Design Fair, Craft Scotland has again teamed up with Emergents to present the work of a multidisciplinary selection of the best makers working in Scotland today. 17 Scotland based designer/makers will be exhibiting work across ceramics, lighting, glass, mixed media, furniture and textiles. The selection includes multi award winning designers, makers for clients including Zaha Hadid, Deutchse Bank, The V&A and Selfridges.
Visitors to the pavilion will discover the inventive and unorthodox glass sculptures of Shaun Fraser, Juli Bolaños-Durman and Harry Morgan, alongside stunning ceramics from Fiona Byrne-Sutton and Patricia Shone. New furniture will be debuted by Hynd and Halliday (a bold new ceramics and furniture partnership) and there will be an opportunity to see new and fascinating work from Bespoke Atelier, Tom Pigeon and Inches Carr Trust bursary winner Lynne MacLachlan.
Bold textiles by Heather Shields, Hilary Grant and Mariam Syed will be on show and furniture perfectionists Jonathan Pang and Namon Gaston, will present their latest pieces. Sculptural lighting designers Yellow Broom and Kate Colin will be joined by glass artist Carrie Fertig in presenting their unique lighting solutions.
Designed by award-winning design studio GRAS, the Scotland: Craft & Design Pavilion again promises to be a stunning yet understated centrepiece at London Design Fair underlining the quality of the work on show. With just four returning designers the 2017 London Design Fair, visitors will have the opportunity to discover a new breed of Scottish design talent in an international context.
“Due to the overwhelming demand for Scottish design led craft we are delighted to be able to showcase a new Scotland: Craft & Design pavilion for 2017. Working in partnership with Emergents, Scotland-based makers have rightly made a huge impression on the London and international design markets. We're look forward to building on that reputation this year and I'm personally very excited to see the reaction to the work of these incredibly talented makers.”
