Across the project’s development, Bleat founder Tristin Norwell became a familiar face in the Retrouvius shop and has incorporated salvaged, reclaimed, vintage and sustainable materials throughout the studio’s multifunctional editing rooms. Earlier this month he gave us the grand tour.

London Design Festival - Retrouvius - The New CraftsmenShare +
This Autumn, The New Craftsmen presents ‘Ways of Seeing’: a collaborative project bringing together maker and interior designer.
The New Craftsmen will invite three prestigious interior designer studios - Maria Speake, Founder of Retrouvius; Emma Burns, Senior Design Director at Sibyl Colefax & John Fowler; and Sasha von Meister and Tom Bartlett, Directors of Waldo Works - to explore the different ways they view and value craft.
Each interior designer will develop their own unique scheme and room concept that showcases their individual personality and exquisite talent whilst highlighting new pieces from The New Craftsmen makers’ collections launching in the Autumn, together with other distinctive elements from their product portfolio.
Each scheme will be interpreted by an illustrator, bringing the imagination and spirit of the rooms to life, with the final outcome echoed in a vignette which will be exhibited in The New Craftsmen showroom.
