We are now stocked in the fantastic Designist shop on South Great Georges St. We dropped by to check out how our products look in amongst some other very cool stuff! And we learnt all about the shop too. Designistwas started by Barbara Nolan & Jennie Flynn, who have been friends for over 10 years and have backgrounds in retail and furniture design respectively. The tagline for the shop is "Beautiful, Affordable, Useful" - meaning no ornamental objects and everything under 100euro (though they admit there are one or two exceptions to the 100euro rule!). They spotted a market for gift & homeware with products developed by an identifiable designer: you won’t find generic mass produced objects in Designist. Another interesting aspect of the shop is that they try to keep the stock 50% Irish designed, 50% international. They want to support home-grown design, while showcasing it alongside the best of the best international design. The shop is located at 68 South Great Georges Street in Dublin 2 and is open everyday except Monday.
Designist now stocks the Cuckoo Clock by Mimi & Eve, the Home Clock by Andy Howell, Dublin Skyline Coasters by Hugh McDermott, and Hot Stuff! Coasters by Jenny Haytch.
