"Art enables us to find ourselves and lose
ourselves at the same time."

Thomas Merton


At the desig(n) gallery we select contemporary high quality handmade pieces from a small group of artists and craftsmen whom we believe represent the best work being produced at this time. Some are well established in their careers, others just starting out, but all demonstrate that essential high level of skill and dedication, discipline and creativity, plus that "spark" that ensures that their work will be as outstanding in the future as it is today and will live on to become a classic. True luxury, as always, lies in the creation of exclusive and personalized objects that are elegant and timeless; particularly at this time, when everything seems to be consumable, subject to fashions and marketing. All designs are unique or part of a limited series and some designs can be made specially to order.
