Foundation 2019

2019 Designers

Foundation, formerly known as CraftWork is a platform for the next generation of designers from across disciplines, each displaying products with the highest level of artisanal craftsmanship. This is a space to reconnect with the niche technique that goes into crafting one-of-a-kind pieces and meet the makers behind them.

Kevin Stamper | Decorex International


Award-winning artist and furniture maker Kevin Stamper presents a new range of cabinets and wall hanging abstract art panels using his signature pixelated style. Kevin Stamper works in wood veneer and solid wood producing abstract art panels and furniture using colour, form and texture as a creative base.  Each piece is made up of hundreds of individual squares of sycamore veneer that have been hand-dyed using a unique process developed by Kevin Stamper himself.

Laurent Peacock | Decorex International


Laurent Peacock is an award-winning contemporary furniture designer and maker based near London. Laurent’s design aesthetic fuses traditional and high-tech materials with both precise hand-crafting and modern production techniques. Laurent holds a coveted Bespoke Guild Mark from the Furniture Makers Company for his ‘Sika’ console table, which will be on show at Decorex 2019.

michele oberdieck foundation


Michele Oberdieck designs and produces unique blown glass vessels and glass panels fused with screen-printed textiles, all hand made in the UK.

Her inspiration is rooted in botanical themes; her 3-D glass works evolving from biomorphic forms, and movement. The works are a pleasure of immersive colour that play on forms with a disruptive symmetry creating a tension resolved with directional flow.

Iluka london


Iluka London designs and handcrafts one-of-a-kind lighting, furniture and accessories using a combination of sustainably sourced wood, resin and acrylic from their workshop in Surrey. The husband and wife team strive to produce products that are not only functional but also pieces of art in their own right.

amy collins foundation


By using the botanical drawings of the 19th century as her inspiration and combining her craftsmanship skills with an innovative mind-set, Amy has created contemporary imagery. She applies her modern imagery expertly applied to unique, luxury wallpaper, fabrics and interior products creating modern day heirloom pieces.

unit 89 foundation


Unit89 is a sculptural ceramic installation and lighting studio working in raw, unglazed porcelain in signature hand-pinched style. Ula Saniawa creates hundreds of elements that make up harmonious ceramic compositions; beautiful, unpredictable, imperfect, yet connected -a balanced merger of mathematical patterns and spontaneity in nature.

Vacrda design
