Thank you London. Hello Newcastle.
This year's London Design Festival was as manic, intense and inspiring as ever. We'd like to thank all who visited us at two new venues during the show, as well as the venues themselves, Mint Gallery and LuxuryMade. With barely time to take a breath, we're heading to our native Newcastle for the Northern Design Festival 2016. Of course we hope you can join us there too.
At Design Event MART, NOVOCASTRIAN reveals Metalchemy, a set of three unique wall-mounted creations which investigate the boundaries between art, sculpture and chemistry. This experimental project employs alchemy alongside the metalworker’s skill to reveal unexpected characteristics of each metal. On display will be:
Cu01 Patinated Copper Ø 850mm
CuZn01 Patinated Brass Ø 750mm
CuZn02 Patinated Brass Ø 750mm
Design event 2016
The Northern Design Festival 2016 takes place in Newcastle and Gateshead from 7 to 16 October, exploring the theme ‘where do ideas come from?’.
Through a programme of events, exhibitions, talks and workshops the festival will discover how ideas evolve into the furniture, products, posters, brands and buildings which surround us every day.
To kick off the festival, we’ll be welcoming some of the UK’s leading creative talent in the fields of architecture, design, graphics and illustration for our inaugural design symposium, Design NOW.
Speakers include the winners of the 2015 Turner Prize, designer and architect collective Assemble; Israel born graphic designer, illustrator and artist Noma Bar; and graphic designer, author and creative director Angus Hyland.
