Sitting between the realms of Art and Design Haidée Drew designs objects and spaces that encourage a playful participation. Inspired by architectural forms, space and composition she subtly addresses function through graphic and sculptural aesthetics.
With a background in contemporary craft Haidée trained in Silversmithing and Metalwork at The Royal College of Art. Establishing her studio in 2009 she supplied homewares for the likes of Heals, Liberty, The Design Museum, and The Conran Shop, as well as working with independent stores and galleries around the world.
Haidée's design residency at Ernö Goldfingers Modernist home, 2 Willow Road with The National Trust and Bow Arts and The Digital Soane award with Sir John Soane's Museum from ignited her curious celebration of objects and shaped her unique approach to design, drawing inspiration from historical collections and Architecture to create her own timeless descendants with a visual dialogue with the past.
Based in East London Haidée now works across product, interiors, Installation, curation and education while her predilection for artifacts and Architecture still drives her evolving collections of objects.
Some clients and stockists Include: The Design Museum, Royal Academy, Barbican, Liberty, The Conran Shop, Heals, Yoo, The National Trust, The British Museum, Sir John Soanes Museum.
