The Traces ‘Junk’ Shop was overflowing with fun and quirky designs from a range of young designers. One of our favorite items was Madam Bottwright’s Bureau by Tim Burrell-Saward and Mike Kannwhich combined found furniture pieces with technology to draw us into a playful guessing game. You can read more about the Traces ‘Junk’ Shop in our feature post here.

Tikau had a number of colourful products that had been designed by Scandanavian designers who had worked Indian artisans and aims to build meaningful, long-term working relationships that enable both the designer and the craftsman to develop in a positive manner.

A great example of the Tikau philosophy and final product outcome is the Tikau Lights. A simple, yet stylish product that has been designed with a specific community to develop new opportunities for income.

If all these design treats weren’t enough, we were almost finished when these amazing chocolate designs caught our eye. Although unfortunately there were no items to taste, this impressive wall decoration by Paul Cocksedge and Hotel Chocolate did give us something to take away with us by scanning the QR code embedded in the chocolate.
