Arran Street East
From their studio in the heart of Dublin, Arran Street East design and hand make home-ware for people who enjoy simple, functional, and beautiful objects. They take time to design things that work, merging an architecturally influenced aesthetic and traditional processes to produce useful objects for everyday life, with pattern and symmetry as our watchwords. Rigorously designed and tested to enhance the experience of eating and drinking, their simple forms and complementary tessellating shapes allow their pieces to withstand everyday use, or just to act as an adornment for your home.

Connect the Dots
Connect the Dots started in 2014 when they met during their MA in Design Practice. It was through attending events aimed at connecting people around a common cause or topic that they noticed a one-size-fits-all approach being used over and over. Event organisers were pushing out events without considering what people actually wanted from them or how to really facilitate networking and connections; the louder voices were always dominating, and there were barely new faces at events. All this resulted in missed opportunities for networking and very little impact afterwards. Connect the Dots now have a tried and tested co-creation process that gives purpose to events and inspires guests.
