Future Heritage 2021

Decorex’s much loved feature, curated by Corrine Julius, has returned for our 2021 edition. Giving 10 up-and-coming makers the platform to showcase their unique talents and exquisite pieces, Future Heritage will provide guaranteed inspiration for its 7th year.

Adam Nathaniel Furman

A trained architect, artist and designer, whose designs span public spaces, installations, interiors and even mugs. Adam is designing three new bespoke collections; including a huge brilliantly coloured, abstract rug based on one of his private drawings and made in collaboration with East London’s FLOOR_STORY. Adam has also collaborated with Curiousa & Curiousa to create an exciting set of glass sculptural light pieces called the Glowbules.

Anna Ray

Anna specialises in colourful soft sculpture, and is creating three large wall hangings/screens, along with two existing works made from her stuffed hand-painted and digitally printed textiles. One of the new works will be part-made live at Decorex.

Kate Maestri

An architectural glass designer and artist, Kate is creating a series of new hand-painted glass screens for the domestic interior, a departure from her usual architecturally focused work which is often seen in the public realm.

Amanda Simmons

Glass artist Amanda plays with gravity forming in the kiln, manipulating mass, heat, colour and time to create complex, elusive work that has intense colour and pattern which reacts to the light it’s placed in. For Decorex she is creating a brand-new series of large-scale glass platters whose colour and pattern derive from her time spent in Australia.

Moritz Waldemeyer

Moritz is a digital maker, who has collaborated with some of the world’s most renowned brands as well as top architects and fashion designers to create captivating digital installations. For Future Heritage in conjunction with Mayice Studio he is designing a brand new chandelier based on a large-scale version of his digital candles.

Daniel Freyne

After recently graduating Daniel uses traditional blacksmithing techniques that he pushes in new ways to create metal vessels, which have the look of ceramic or leather and cry out to be touched. They range in scale from the handheld to the majestic. Daniel is making a series of over-sized ‘Transition’ metal vessels to show at Decorex, alongside another new series of mixed-sized vessels called ‘Perceptions’.

Frances Pinnock

Using leather from Britain's only remaining traditional oak bark tannery to create her work, Frances produced extraordinary asymmetrical leather vessels that she makes using adapted hand sewn shoe-making techniques. For Future Heritage, she is making even bigger scale works including a large sculptural piece.

Marco Campardo

An inventive designer-maker who specialises in the re-purposing of materials. For Future Heritage he is creating a series of new tables and seating, made from discarded wood sheets by Italian company, Alpi. These combine spontaneous assembly and careful manual finishing.

Fabio Hendry

A young, experimental designer is similarly pre-occupied with intelligent re-use of discarded materials. He specialises in developing new materials and processes, with a strong interest in environmental and sustainability issues. For Future Heritage he is presenting a series of free-standing, wall-mounted, table and suspended lights as well as furniture, including seating and a wall mirror and console.

Callum Partridge

Callum, a metalsmith and jeweller is creating a series of candelabra in angular, modernist and geometric shapes. He uses precious and everyday metals including steel, brass, silver and gold for his contemporary metal work.
