The Atelier100 2023 Cohort has been assembled – and their works have become reality! From architects to sculptors, from 3D-printed footwear to jewellery, Atelier100 will showcase the unique and eclectic pieces in its pop-up showroom in East London, designed by long-term collaborator, design studio Mitre & Monday.
Atelier100’s 2023 Cohort is a community of inspiring makers who have created products that embody the shapes, colours and textures of their surroundings, and harness the energy and hustle of London life. Made using locally sourced materials and production methods, each of their pieces is a masterpiece of local design, offering a solid argument for the benefit of working – and shopping – close to home. To close the loop, Atelier100 will sell the finished products that will be available for pre-order during London Design Festival. The talented roster of designers span a wide range of disciplines, including industrial design, sculpture, textiles and fashion. As part of the programme, every designer has been connected with industry experts and manufacturers to help realise their vision. These mentors are talented designers, tastemakers and industry insiders including: fashion designer and model Abiola Omole; Fred Rigby, Founder of Fred Rigby Studio; Kate Hills, Founder of Make it British; and Professor Mark Brearley, an architect and author of Made In London, a volume specialising in the industries, makers and crafts that take place all over London.
