The Wood and Woad showcase at London’s Few and Far Gallery provided a great space to see some of the top locally produced green designs at this year's London Design Festival. The show featured everything from furniture by Pinch, great vessels made entirely from twigs by Jane Bevan, and inventive lamps from top designer Ingo Maurer.
