The whole collection of Dare Studio
At this year’s 100%Design in London a new promising manufacturer will launch his first collection: Dare Studio. The company was founded by Sean Dare, who worked as designer for more than ten years producing many commercially successful designs for leading retailers and manufacturers. The pieces he designed for Dare Studio are made in relatively small quantities and show a high standard of craftmanship.
