Spotlight on people will always need plates....

People wil always need plates is the creation of Hannah Dipper and Robin Farquhar. Launched in 2004, they aim to use high quality, low volume batch production to create witty, thoughtful and stylish products as a direct antithesis to the current proliferation of cheap, throwaway design.

In keeping with their credo that good design should be used and enjoyed, treasured and shared, Hannah and Robin try to develop products that, while diverse in style and application, always retain the fundamental values of functionality and beauty.

Given their varied backgrounds (Hannah is an ex-RCA ceramist and has extensive industrial ceramics experience as well as work for Conran & Partners, while Robin, having studied industrial design at Brunel has spent most of his working life in exhibition and interior design agencies) they can offer a complete product, graphic, exhibition and interior design service alongside their core range and commissioned wares.

Trellick Tower

Erno Goldfinger's Brutalist masterpiece has captured the imagination of many a Londoner, us included, so we are celebrating this concrete edifice with a limited edition of our ever popular Trellick Tower dinner plates and mugs.

1930s Modernist Seaside Villas

As a companion set to the 1930s Modernist London Homes, this set of English bone china plates and mugs illustrates the minimal beauty of white-rendered pre-war modern masterpieces around Britain's coastline. There are four images available and in keeping with the tradition of collectible plates each image is a limited edition. While they look super hanging on the wall, the plates are all dishwasher and microwave safe and suitable for food use.
