Back for its 15th anniversary edition, French Craft Collective is an exclusive one-day event dedicated to high-end design, curated by Business France.

It gives British specifiers and journalists the opportunity to discover a hand-picked selection of French craftspeople renowned for their know-how, techniques and unique expertise. These makers are highly specialised in private residential and commercial design projects.

Several world-class, highly-skilled French artisans come together in London to showcase a glimpse of their creations, bringing selected pieces for the trade to see. Proceedings centre around ‘Rendez-vous with the Makers’ sessions, where specifiers can meet the artisans, discover their crafts and discuss ideas for collaboration.

In addition, a thought-provoking panel discussion featuring leading names from the design industry takes place during the day.

A space for learning, networking, sharing ideas and discovering opportunities for future collaborations on design projects, the event showcases the skills of exceptional makers working in France.

Please note: Event attendance is strictly by RSVP and subject to approval by Business France.

An experiential, multi-sensory exhibition, aimed at encouraging a more nature-based approach to design!

Curated by environmentally-focused media and events platform Planted, in collaboration with Oliver Heath Design Studio, Bio-Spaces will plunge the visitor into the world of biophilic design, exploring biodiversity and biomimicry in design, as well as biomorphic design, bio-based materials and bioregenerative design.

Visitors will journey through a series of modular gridded ‘islands’, each exploring a theme pertinent to the concept of nature-informed design and each populated with exemplary case studies and products that derive inspiration and materials from nature and the environment. A multi-sensory approach alongside touches of greenery will enhance the experience, bringing the water-inspired spaces of the Zaha Hadid Architects-designed Roca London Gallery into direct dialogue with like-minded projects and products that aim to reconnect people and spaces with nature.

This is achieved through the gallery’s extensive network of designers and brands.

The gallery has also hosted various artists from around the region and the world, showcasing their work, artistry, and the inspiration behind their ideas. These events have been instrumental in bringing together clients and artists to interact in understanding the creative process and vision behind many pieces.
