Dublin is one of just 3 cities (from around 50) which have been shortlisted for Design Capital 2014, awarded by the International Council of Societies of Industrial Design (ICSID), the winning city (Dublin/ Capetown /Bilbao) will be announced this autumn.
As part of Dublin's pitch to the visiting panel of judges, a banquet was held at the Hugh Lane gallery on Thursday night, with the table featuring some of the best of Irish craft and design, curated by Jonathan Legge. I supplied 8 of my Vic and Bob grinders to the table setting.
The set up looked really great and by all accounts the event went swimmingly.
Fingers crossed for Dublin now.
