‘Making’ is the next generation of creating. It’s the union of traditional techniques, from print-making and jewellery-making to knitting, with cutting-edge technology, often yielding astonishing results, such as laser-cut jewellery and 3D-printed porcelain. ‘Maker Spaces’ takes an in-depth look inside 13 beautiful homes, studios and workspaces of the pioneering creative minds of some of the best-known makers, from a colour-filled, uplifting studio space in super-trendy East London to the retro reverie of a stunning San Francisco apartment. Their clever styling ideas and imaginative, ingenious creative spaces will delight and inspire in equal measure. ‘Maker Spaces’ also includes examples of the incredible things that their owners create, as well as advice on how to turn your ideas into beautiful products. This innovative, engaging book will give you the ideas and impetus to create inspirational and achievable interiors, fresh from some of the most exciting and dynamic designers in the world right now.
