10th anniversary of Heal's Discovers

Heal’s has a long history of working with emerging design talent – its most recent manifestation being the annual Heal’s Discovers collection, which highlights the brand’s commitment to design education by discovering and nurturing the next generation of designers.

This autumn sees the 10th anniversary of Heal’s Discovers, and the brand new collection will be launched at Heal’s Tottenham Court Road store during this year’s London Design Festival (13-21 September 2014). In addition, the range will be on display at 100% Design, the longest running contemporary design event in the UK, from 17-20 September 2014.

Working closely with four universities that share the same ethos as Heal’s, the retailer has handpicked five graduates to make their debuts – each is keen to showcase their own individual take on contemporary craftsmanship. The chosen designers are Philip Luscombe and Josh South with their Rickard step-stool; Sam Lloyd with his Sand Cast stool; Ester Comunello with her Turn coffee table, floor lamp and mirror; and Tom Parfitt with his Maya side table. The five have been mentored by the Heal’s product and design team and given the opportunity to have their pieces manufactured and retailed in-store.

All pieces will be available to buy in Heal’s Tottenham Court Road store, and at 100% Design (17-20 September 2014).
