WITNESS THE HAND OF THE MAKER
The role of tradition and craft in modern design is more important than ever. Take timber experts The Galvin Brothers’ new collaboration with David Mellor Design as a case in point. Its cutler’s stool ( left) is a reimagined version of the ones once used by cutlery makers and silversmiths (from £165; galvinbrothers.co.uk). Meanwhile, Dutch brand Moooi’s ‘Obon’ terracotta table ( below), created by Italian designer Simone Bonanni, is glazed by hand (from £565; moooi.com).
