A month-long exhibition celebrating the work of Finnish designer Timo Sarpaneva opens on 1 December at London gallery and retailer Vessel. The exhibition showcases the designer’s creations with glass, notably for Littala and Venini, and celebrates 25 years of the Soumi tableware range, for which Sarpaneva was awarded the highest accolade in the porcelain world, a gold medal from Faenza. As part of the exhibition, which falls on the eve of the designer’s 75th birthday, Vessel will unveil Sarpaneva’s latest work in glass.
The Australian energy start-up Edify was founded in 2015 but needed an identity to match its “established success” and wider work network.
The platform has been developed in partnership with software developers and designers EPAM, and will be targeted at children and their families in Europe and Central Asia.
The visual identity — which includes a new golden logo — (almost) leaves out its famous kangeroo as Australia looks to tell other stories.
The funding is in partnership with UKRI, and will award up to £150,000 to projects which “trial ways to implement refill infrastructure”.
