I visited 100% Design this week and what really caught my attention was how some companies are working with traditional design techniques to create beautiful modern products for today.
|Products from Melin tregwynt|
Melin Tregwynt is a family owned company based in Wales; they have taken the traditional Welsh weaving techniques and updated them with a modern mix of colour and pattern.
|Modern mix in tradional techniques|
Koji Katsuragi is a furniture maker working from his workshop in Kyushu, Japan, his designs are based on traditional English Windsor chair styles....
The chairs he designs and sells are a modern take on a classic - simple and tasteful.
