North Yorkshire furniture designer Dovetailors is to exhibit at an interior style event in Manchester that will bring together some of the country’s most innovative design and manufacturing companies.
Makers will showcase the latest imaginative furniture, glassware, ceramics, metalwork, soft furnishings and lighting from top UK designers.
The exhibition will introduce the industry to some of the latest projects by Harrogate-based Dovetailors, which was recently commissioned to build a new altar and church furniture for Wakefield Cathedral as part of its Project 2013 refurbishment.
Designer David Wilson said:We have had a phenomenal year at Dovetailors with a rebrand, refurbishment of our gallery and some exciting contracts.
We have pushed the boundaries time and again in our work using a combination of traditional craft techniques and state of the art computer aided design to create products that are innovative and practical.
This exhibition will give us an opportunity to showcase some of our most revolutionary work and demonstrate how great design can go hand in hand with manufacturing methods that have been used in furniture making for centuries.
Mr Wilson said the company’s three-legged chair design using wood reinforced with steel had been one of last year’s landmark contemporary creations.
The event will be held at CUBE gallery in Manchester, described by the Guardian as “one of the coolest and classiest galleries around”. Entry is free and the exhibition will run from 15th to 25th May, 12noon – 5pm Monday to Saturday.
