Taking a curatorial yet collaborative approach, the show’s Founder and Director Jimmy MacDonald has sought to underline Super Brands London’s reputation for bringing the best global design to the capital. “Throughout the year we work actively to handpick a diverse selection of brands who highlight current global design trends, each presenting a distinctive temporary showroom space within Super Brands London” he said.
Brands showing for the first time at Super Brands London 2015 will include Neo/Craft, the new furniture label from Berlin-based designer Sebastian Scherer, which reexamines traditional notions about materials with striking effect. Also making its debut, Swiss brand Yask makes pieces that take inspiration from nature yet are resolutely forward looking, while the Laviitta collection from Finnish company Poiat has classic Scandinavian design principles at its core. &New, a contemporary furniture brand created by a British-Finnish design duo Jo Wilton and Mirka Grohn, produces graphic, lacquered steel pieces in small batches from its London workshop, and Italian studio IL Laboratorio Dell’Imperfetto’s experimental fibreglass pieces can be used both indoors and out.
