Retailer Heal’s has a long history of working with emerging design talent, and its annual Heal’s Discovers initiative highlights the brand’s commitment to design education by discovering and nurturing the next generation of designers.
As well as its in-house design team, a key part of Heal’s heritage has been partnering with independent designers to bring its customers well-made and good-quality design – be they well-established or newly discovered names.
In previous years Heal’s has approached up-and-coming designers or worked directly with universities, but now in its eleventh year it is opening up its submission process to the wider public.
This year Heal’s is offering designers and design students the opportunity to submit designs for the dining room – be it furniture (dining tables or seating), homeware (crockery and serveware) or even textiles (tablecloths, runners etc).
Three final winning designs will be selected and put into production and the designers will receive a royalty for every item sold. They will be launched as part of the Heal’s Autumn/Winter campaign during the London Design Festival in September 2015.
