I was a child of the Eighties and one of my favourite films, then and now, is the classic Back To The Future, which sees a time-travelling teenager trapped in 1955 and trying to find a way back to the present day. After the year that was 2020, the fantastical sci-fi plot resonates with me more than ever. It’s been 12 months where we’ve all felt equally imprisoned in what has seemed to be some sort of alternate dimension. The idea of battling to get back to normality feels painfully familiar. Of course, as much as we may be hankering after what our lives used to be pre-Covid, the reality is that the way we live has changed irrevocably. So, while we’re looking back at what went before, as we burst…

Launched at 2020’s Design Nation exhibition as part of Decorex, the ‘Prism’ collection by Scottish designer-maker Angus Ross scooped the award for Best Sustainable Product. Crafted in Ross’s Perthshire workshop from local ash and oak, it takes its name from the sliced and steam-bent triangular arches that sweep around the frame of each piece, adding strength to the structure as well as creating a refined silhouette. The range includes a chair, shelving unit, side table and a stool with a hand-twisted English rush seat. From £900 for a table (angusross.co.uk).…

Admirers of Yinka Ilori’s uplifting public artworks can now bring a piece of his positivity home with the launch of his debut accessories collection. A celebration of Ilori’s British-Nigerian heritage, the range includes tableware, kitchen textiles, rugs and cushions emblazoned with the artist’s signature bold patterns and kaleidoscopic colour palette. There’s as much focus on craft and quality as on aesthetics, with pieces produced by specialist makers in Portugal, Poland, Nepal and the UK to ensure each design spreads joy long into the future.

How would you describe your approach? We call it ‘emotive industrial design’. We try to use form, colour and materials to elicit joy. It’s specifically designed to engage people, and to invite interaction. Which design best sums up your studio’s work? Difficult question to answer! The ‘Colombo Two’ telephone, designed in 2008 for SGW, is a good example of a design that brings together our core values – emotion, function, connection and accessibility. It really helped to define my path in design; to create objects that make a connection with as many people as possible, and to make them feel good. What was your starting point for the ‘True Square’ project? Rado’s combination of high-tech material innovation with traditional craftsmanship was fascinating and inspiring – I wanted to find a way to…
