DesignedMade is proud to announce the launch of its latest collection, the Steel Molecular range.

Steel Molecular Bowl

The Steel Molecular range applies DesignedMade’s signature graphic style to the molecular structure of steel, resulting in a pattern that is both decorative and informative. The pattern, which represents the combination of iron and carbon atoms that make up the material itself, lends the pieces an educational function in addition to their primary purpose. The collection currently consists of fruit bowls and coasters which are punched from mild steel using a custom-designed tool.

DesignedMade worked closely with the buying team at the Science Museum shop to develop the products.

Tarantula Tea Light in white

DesignedMade will launch the Tarantula Tea Light in white at the Pulse trade show in June.

DesignedMade founder and designer of the Tarantula Tea Light, Jonathan Krawczuk explains that it is the ideal time to produce this popular design in a new colourway: “The white finish on the Tarantula Tea Light adds an extra touch of elegance to the product, it really suits the strong linear form. Since we launched the Tarantula in 2009, we’ve had endless requests at trade shows and from customers for the product in white. We originally launched the Tarantula at Pulse so it seems quite fitting that it’s going to be the backdrop for this new release.”

Pulse Trade Show - Launchpad 2011

DesignedMade will make its third consecutive appearance at the annual Pulse trade show, a leading event on the design calendar.

Last year at the show we were awarded the Best Newcomer Launchpad 2010 – Thorsten van Elten award, which was a great honour and accolade. As well as taking orders from new stockists in the UK, we sealed our first export order to Japan where our products are now being exclusively distributed by G.H. Carriere. We hope that Pulse 2011 will be as successful as the 2010 show.

This year you can find us (in the same place as last year), at Stand LP7, Earls Court 1 from 5-7 June.
