Dylan Freeth and Tomoko Azumi start the week of discussions


We’re fully submersed in London life for this week with a large selection of our products now on display with Coexistence.

Hosting a series of discussion we’ve had two so far which have both been varied, interesting and thought provoking.

Yesterday we were joined by designers from MCM and Max Fraser for our first discussion which centred around the role of the designer, manufacturer and specifier in promoting sustainability in the furniture industry and just what part of sustainability is going to be the key for the future?

Tomoko Azumi’s presentation, which was the catalyst for our first discussion, focused on her own ideals of a sustainable approach to design and how it is reflected in the Spin series designed for MARK.

We followed up this morning with designers from BDP, TTSP and MCM joining Dylan Freeth and MARK discussing the process of product development in collaboration with the manufacturer.

Dylan provided insights to his approach for the Iso table range which was launched at 100% Design earlier in the year. Now we’re looking forward to seeing what topic arises as the discussion point when Gala Wright joins us this afternoon.

If you’d like to attend one of the events please contact Daniel Gay at Coexistence on 020 7354 8817 to book in. Both Gala and Tomoko are doing a further two sessions finishing with Sam Johnson on Friday morning.
