MADE.COM Launches 4th TalentLAB Collection Curated by Michelle Ogundehin

 
[09-May-2019]
 

LONDON, May 9, 2019 /PRNewswire/ -- Leading European design brand MADE.COM has launched the 4th collection of its TalentLAB initiative with its first ever independent curator. The collection, which features 18 independently designed products, has been curated by the expert design eye of Michelle Ogundehin. The designers come from eight countries, including France, Spain and Denmark, with seven talented designers based in the United Kingdom.

Internationally renowned as an authority on interiors, trends and style, Michelle Ogundehin is a writer, consultant and TV presenter and the award-winning former Editor-in-Chief of ELLE Decoration UK. Michelle's curation spans from upholstery to accessories and Michelle has deliberately underpinned her selection with touches of wood and brass, which she believes have an intrinsic sense of truth, honesty and authenticity.

TalentLAB enables up and coming designers and enthusiasts to submit designs for the chance to see it come to life. Michelle has curated a collection of the 18 best submitted designs and now customers can support the ones they want to see produced by pledging a £5 refundable deposit on their favourites. The most popular will be produced and sold on MADE.COM.

For designers, this is a chance to gain access to MADE's vast network of producers across the globe, the Europe-wide catalogue of customers and to the technology which enables distribution to MADE's thirteen commercial markets. All successful designers who have their work put into production and sold on MADE.COM are paid in the exact same way as current MADE designers, via royalties on their product.

Michelle Ogundehin comments: "TalentLAB gives anyone who has a good, innovative idea the chance to be a designer. When I pulled together the colour palette, I wanted a sense of timelessness, with a top note of fashionability. Pieces that capture the attention for being different, as well as great forever buys that work now, tomorrow and onwards.

Michelle has also offered up her top tips for up and coming designers in a new video available to view here: https://youtu.be/Lcj_oXcFND0
