Future Icons

Future Icons is somewhere you need to get your good self down to. Yup, there are great presents and investment pieces for other people, but mainly there are brilliant things for you to buy. For yourself. A pop up showroom that acts as a base for a rotating list of international brands, here are some of our favourites at the moment.

Anna Barlow

It’s only a blooming ice cream/cake/sugar rush sundae. Leading the way in contemporary glazing techniques, Anna Barlow’s fascination with food has led her to develop collections of ceramic sculptures based on indulgent treats. Anna’s work has previously been on display at the V&A Museum, Royal Academy Summer Show and Collect at the Saatchi Gallery.

Utopia and Utility

Utopia and Utility

Reader, we loved Utopia and Utility’s hanging pendants so much, we bought one for ourselves. At the heart of Utopia & Utility is its founder and designer Pia Wüstenberg. Pia hand selects and nurtures craftspeople across Europe to expertly craft her designs from her home in North Germany. Internationally celebrated in museums, galleries and design events, some of her most notable residences include the V&A, 10 Downing Street and Triennale di Milano.

As well as providing a space to showcase their wares, Louisa Pacifico and the Future Icons team also provide marketing and event support. Pacifico has previously headed up sales and events at Clerkenwell Design Week, New Designers as well as time as CEO of Craft Central, so this is a woman that knows a good craft-led investment piece.

Kevin Stamper

The pixel look is bang on trend and this man is all over it. A true master craftsman, Kevin Stamper designs and painstakingly creates his fine furniture and wall pieces from his Wimbledon studio in London. Kevin’s unique marquetry process has gained him awards through Worshipful Company of Furniture Makers.
