18 FOR MICHAEL AR­TI­SANS AN­GOVE OF DE­VIZES

Bri­tish de­signer Michael An­gove unveils his Liv­ing Wall tile col­lec­tion for Ar­ti­sans of De­vizes at Fo­cus. On 19 Septem­ber from 10am-2pm, there’s the chance to see him at work in the Ar­ti­sans of De­vizes showroom. Here, he tells us more. What in­spired your Liv­ing Wall de­signs? I love be­ing out­side, so it felt instinctive to cre­ate pat­terns based on na­ture. De­sign­ing tiles was a new ex­pe­ri­ence, and I thought it would be fun to do some­thing that looked like a wall of plants. The range is filled with flora and fauna I’ve seen on my trav­els.

How do you see them be­ing used? They’re in­tended to work any­where in the home – a kitchen splash­back would be great. You could use them to trans­form a bath­room. Imag­ine how calm­ing it would be to lie back for a soak and find the but­ter­flies amidst the black­ber­ries. I also think the de­signs would look in­cred­i­ble in en­trance halls, for a mod­ern take on the Vic­to­rian tiled dado.

How would you de­scribe your style? I am a well-con­sid­ered max­i­mal­ist. Nearly all of my de­signs are com­plex botan­i­cals at the mo­ment – they are full of life and en­ergy, which I think is im­por­tant in de­sign and an an­ti­dote to min­i­mal­ism.

39 BETHAN GRAY AT DESIGNJUNCTION

Welsh de­signer Bethan Gray is launch­ing her de­but light­ing col­lec­tion at Designjunction this year and also cre­at­ing a be­spoke bar with whisky brand The Glen­livet. Plus, she is un­veil­ing a fur­ni­ture col­lab­o­ra­tion with An­thro­polo­gie. She tells us more. What in­spired your new Vic­to­ria light­ing col­lec­tion? I up­turned one of my Vic­to­ria tea cups for Edi­tions Mi­lano over a light bulb and was in­spired by the way that you could see not only the veins of the Car­rara mar­ble, but also the shad­ows from the hand-carved ridges.

You are de­sign­ing a bar with The Glen­livet – what is it like? The Glen­livet had pre­vi­ously com­mis­sioned me to de­sign a bot­tle and can­is­ter for its Vin­tage 1967 whisky. The bar de­sign bor­rows el­e­ments from that: cop­per echoes the whisky stills, while hand-stained bird­s­eye maple re­flects the charred wooden bar­rels. The bar it­self will be black mar­ble, with an in­laid mo­tif in­spired by the River Spey and the lay­ers of mist that gather in the val­leys sur­round­ing The Glen­livet dis­tillery. My Vic­to­ria light­ing will make an ap­pear­ance, too

Tell us about your fur­ni­ture with An­thro­polo­gie. It’s based on in­dige­nous Amer­i­can cul­tures. I was drawn to the graphic pat­terns found on their ancient pot­tery – they look so con­tem­po­rary. I’m par­tic­u­larly proud of a cast-resin bar cabi­net in­spired by the Pue­bloan feather mo­tif. I also love the ma­te­ri­als we’ve used – Car­rara mar­ble, brass, glass, velvet and wood – and the colour pal­ette of rose pink, char­coal, mint green and brass.
