The Future of Home
A chandelier with 'monstera leaves' (Urpflanze) hangs from the ceiling. A fluted marble-effect, mustard-coloured cylindrical side table (Chalk Plaster); a de stijl inspired dining chair (Mirrl); and a sheet of white surface material speckled with colourful inclusions (Mirrl) are all arranged in front of a minimalist backdrop of white boards.

The Future of Home
– Local Heroes at London Design Festival 2021

The Future of Home by Local Heroes showroom at London Design Festival 2021 celebrated Scotland’s contemporary design scene. Part of the prestigious Brompton Design District, designers from 15 studios and brands that embody Scotland’s dynamic design culture, were invited by curator Stacey Hunter to exhibit new work in a special collection marking five years since the first Local Heroes exhibition. ⁠⁠

Reflecting on an increased fluidity between our home and our workspace, The Future of Home offered a fresh take on modern interiors. Over 40 new products, from furniture and lighting to textiles and collectible craft were brought together to create spaces of comfort and style that also reflect the hybrid needs of flexible working. ⁠

The Future of Home offered a vision of a future where interiors are fun, beautiful, and tactile. A platform for critical discussion, and acquisition, the exhibition presented product launches from a new generation of designers.⁠
