More than 200 designer-makers will display their wares at the Chelsea Crafts Fair, which celebrates its 25th anniversary this year. Presented by the Crafts Council, the fair will present more ‘directional, cutting-edge’ work than ever, say its organisers, reflecting the public’s growing interest in craft and applied art. Around 30 per cent of exhibitors will be first-timers, alongside familiar names such as glass designers Alison Kinnaird and Bob Crooks. Design disciplines covered include sculpture, ceramics, textiles and metal. The exhibition runs from 12 to 24 October at Chelsea Old Town Hall, King’s Road, London SW3.
The awards look at how design can contribute to a business’ success, and this year’s winning projects include those for Carlsberg, Raspberry Pi and Budweiser.
