This inspiring regular fixture curated by design critic Corinne Julius, returns. This showcase of new works commissioned from boundary-pushing makers and craftspeople also includes ceramicist Alice Walton who regularly reimagines mundane and everyday objects. For Decorex she has created an installation of large elongated and extruded wall tiles that mirror the pipes found on the roof of the Olympia exhibition hall. Artist James Rigler took inspiration from the architecture and motifs found at Olympia’s Grand Hall to create furniture and lighting in simplified geometric shapes. Highlights include Mexican product designer Fernando Laposse’s ‘Totomoxtle’ (pictured) corn husk marquetry furniture and wall coverings, Lynne Maclachlan’s 3D-printed biodegradable plastic wall tiles, Gavin Keightley’s Jesmonite stools inspired by natural erosion and Studio Furthermore’s bisque porcelain vessels that mirror the material used to coat Nasa space shuttles
