Earlier this month, Interior Designer Molly Anderson attended Design Festival North on a one-day designer city break to Manchester.
Design Social North plans to become the Northern equivalent to Clerkenwell’s design week in London. The show aims to provide the design community with an opportunity to network, participate in educational seminars and discover brand new product launches, all in one go.
Although it is only in its early years, the show is quickly becoming a rich celebration of the diverse and growing design community that exists within the North of England. It’s a community GT3 are proud to be part of and we look forward to seeing events like this grow.
This year there was a common thread of new product launches with a sustainable focus.
The following three were Molly’s favourite from the day:
1.Mediterranean colour shades of the range Sunlit days, Silestone by the company COSENTINO
2. Johnson Tiles on becoming the first tile company to go plastic free
3. Furniture supplier EFG European Furniture Group UK was showcasing the sustainable office furniture brand Savo
“Applauding design in the North is something that I feel passionately about; the more we show up, the more it will grow.”
