SARAH FEATHERSTONE / ARCHITECT Sarah is one half of the design duo behind Featherstone Young, which has, since its foundation in 2002, gained several awards from the Royal Institute of British Architects. Her approach to design is a sympathetic and sustainable one, focusing on houses that last and also feed the environment around them. This is certainly true of the house featured in this issue from page 184. Sarah studied at what was then Kingston Polytechnic, where she was inspired by the teaching of Kath Shonfield and Jeremy Till, whom she credits with helping her to develop her interest in socially orientated design. Which people have inspired your work? ‘I admire architects like Jim Sterling and James Gowan, who are not afraid to experiment and push the boundaries – even if, in…

This is always a busy time of year for the design industry, with the annual London Design Festival kicking off on September 18 and plenty of launches and celebratory events. This year (if Covid allows), it looks set to be busier than ever as we make up for lost time – and there’s the first autumn RHS Chelsea Flower Show, starting on September 21.

12 Lola Lely An exploration of familiar materials and traditional craft skills, Lola Lely’s work pushes both to their limits to produce something that feels fresh and relevant in terms of contemporary design. After graduating from the Royal College of Art in product design in 2012, she embarked on her own collections and collaborations. Early projects included making dye from rusty nails and vinegar to create indigo-stained wooden furniture, and developing techniques for faux-marble surfaces on 3D objects. Online dealer Invisible Collection sells some of Lola’s work, including a jesmonite-topped table, and her designs, including an iteration of a Japanese endai bench, are also available from The New Craftsmen. ‘Reimagining an aesthetic or a technique is what interests me.’ lolalely.com 13 The New Craftsmen Earlier this year Lola took part in a five-day…

The new ‘Wireline Pendant Light’ (right) by Italian design duo Formafantasma (Andrea Trimarchi and Simone Farresin) for Flos is one such example. It is made from just two components – rubber cables and glass tubes – which can be combined to create delightful, sculptural light installations. Available in pink (shown) and forest green, it costs £2,565, from Chaplins. chaplins.co.uk 27 Faye Toogood A year ago, designer Faye Toogood launched the sixth iteration of her ‘Assemblage’ furniture series at the Friedman Benda gallery in New York.
