Trend Watch: Local Furniture and the 100 Mile Interior
While having coffee with another design blogger, we discussed the future of design in the new economy. I suggested that furniture might follow food: people will want to look the designer in the eye to ensure that they are getting something built to last that is fair value and made from local materials. We know about the 100 mile diet; now it is time for the 100 mile interior. An example might be the work of Hundredstenunits in Coventry, UK.
Matt Bassett, David Horan and Tom Nelson write:
hundredstensunits was established in order to design and manufacture simple, beautiful and useful products utilising local resources and expertise.
