ALASDAIR CAMERON Garden designer Ever since he was a boy, Alasdair Cameron has loved being in the garden. Aged 18, he embarked on an interior-design course with a strong focus on garden design. He set up on his own in 1992 and has worked on a wide variety of projects since then, including his own Devon garden (on pages 258-265). His favourite part of this project was being able to ‘harmonise the house with the landscaping – our garden was a blank canvas, so we could settle the house naturally within it’. Which plant is currently your favourite? ‘Crataegus, which blossoms in spring and bears berries in autumn. I am also enjoying using herbs in herbaceous borders – for their scent, structure and colour.’ ED KLUZ Artist From illustrations to printmaking, and fabric design to painting,…

from the editor

When you turn this page, you will see something different at the front of the magazine. To tie in with London Design Festival (September 14-22), we are introducing a new annual special section, Design 100 (from page 39). Edited by David Nicholls, it celebrates the best of modern and contemporary design today – the products, the ideas and the people behind them. For some, House & Garden is synonymous with country-house decorating, but a flick through the archives quickly reveals that we also have a long and fruitful history of bringing our readers the best of contemporary design, from names like Verner Panton in the Fifties and Terence Conran in the Sixties to regular reports from the influential Milan Design Week, where the latest in contemporary furniture is presented each…

11 ini archibong

International design talents tend to settle in Milan, Paris or London, but Californian-born Ini Archibong lives in Neuchâtel, a Swiss lakeside town surrounded by mountain scenery. Perhaps this partly explains his spiritual outlook, and the ethereal and organic forms he creates. Not that the designer has seen much of his home lately. ‘I’ve been travelling weekly for the past year between Paris, New York, LA, Slovenia and Milan,’ he says over the phone, while in transit. The rising star acknowledges that this is the price of his current success, which has been remarkably swift. After all, his first furniture collection – In The Secret Garden, which incorporated graduated rainbow glass – debuted just three years ago. During Milan Design Week this year, Ini showed Part II of his Below the Heavens…

12 THE INVISIBLE COLLECTION, LONDON Having launched in 2016 with a series of glamorous, highly Instagrammable popups in Paris, Miami, Milan and London, The Invisible Collection is as sophisticated as the duo behind it. Anna Zaoui and Isabelle Dubern, design lovers who divide their time between Paris, London and New York, established the company as an online shop. It sells contemporary furniture, lighting and accessories that had previously been unobtainable, as they had been originally created by interior designers and architects exclusively for projects ranging from hotels and restaurants to private houses. The idea has struck a chord. The Invisible Collection now represents 50 designers – mostly of French origin – who follow in the decorative arts tradition, such as Pierre Yovanovitch, Vincent Darré and Marc Ange. In 2018, Anna and Isabelle…

15 ‘ExCinere’ by Formafantasma for Dzek Five years ago the architectural materials developer Dzek launched the now iconic Marmoreal – an ‘engineered marble’ made in collaboration with designer Max Lamb. Dzek’s founder Brent Dzekciorius (pictured right) is a design curator who has previously worked for Moss Gallery in New York and Phillips in London. His company’s latest innovation is ‘ExCinere’, created with the Amsterdam-based studio Formafantasma. The result of three years of experimentation, this collection teams porcelain tiles with glazes made from volcanic ash from Mount Etna – a material Formafantasma has been working with for a long time. There is a distinct Seventies feel to the tiles, which are available in two rectangular sizes and a colour palette of hazy yellows and browns. The shades are determined by the amount…

28 sheridan coakley

A quiet hero of the British design scene, Sheridan Coakley – the engaging founder of the London furniture emporium SCP – has helped launch the careers of Jasper Morrison, Matthew Hilton, Konstantin Grcic and many others. ‘I’ve never had a plan,’ he says with characteristic modesty. ‘Have I been a champion of young designers? I suppose so, but not out of the goodness of my heart – we’ve all benefitted.’ Since 1985, SCP has evolved from selling reproductions of Thirties tubular steel furniture to become a much loved and highly respected institution, designing, manufacturing and selling 20th-century and contemporary design. Its main showroom is a three-storey building in Curtain Road, EC2, to which Sheridan added a new outpost earlier this year in Pimlico Road, SW1. It will stay open until the…
