The New Designer of 2011

On Wednesday 6th July I attended the New Designers 2011 exhibition at the Business Design Center in Angel Islington. The exhibition  is on until the 9th July 2011. The exhibit contains designs from 3,500 students who have recently graduated from university.

I attended the preview night which included an award show for promising designs and free alcohol. The atmosphere was friendly and the Ex-Students were buzzing with excitement as visitors walked around each design viewing the unique qualities of each design. The designs are modern and eco-friendly pushing the envelope on how designers make use of the materials they use.

One of the standout exhibits came from 22 year old Hannah Griffiths a furniture and product designer from Buckinghamshire New University.  Hannah designed the ‘Three Sixty Desk’, ‘Blond & Brunette Stool’ and a fantastic study chair ( See Below). Hannah Griffiths is part of the new wave of British designers who are breaking out of the standardized formats of past designers.

The New Designers 2011 exhibition will close tomorrow so I advise anyone who is interested in this to attend the showcase. Ticket prices our available on the business design website or you can just turn up and purchase your tickets on the door. I will try to get an interview with Hannah Griffiths about her work and future plans but until then if your interested in working with Hannah or buying any of her designs you will need to contact her via her email which is HannahGriffiths@Genuine-Design.co.uk for more information.
