Architect Stickland Coombe has created an exhibition for the Jerwood Applied Arts Prize, organised by the Crafts Council and the Jerwood Charity. This year’s competition focuses on furniture and the show will run from 12 August-31 October at the Crafts Council Gallery, before touring nationally. Kerr Noble is creating exhibition graphics and NB Studio has designed the marketing materials (poster pictured). Shortlisted for the prize are Tom Dixon, Edward Barber and Jay Osgerby, El Ultimo Grito, Jim Partridge (see Profile, page 20) and Shin and Tomoko Azumi. The winner will receive £15 000, to be awarded on 13 September.
