Mint exhibited works by a diverse group of forward-thinking designers with an avant-garde approach to materials and the making process. They push the boundaries by combining craft and design to create special commissions in the fields of furniture, lighting, ceramics and glassware design. A strong emphasis is given to projects that embrace sustainable materials and methods, without compromising poetic, timeless and playful outcomes.

Collect 2019 occupied the Saatchi Gallery for four days with 45 galleries – the largest number of participating galleries in the fair’s history – selected by an independent panel of experts, selling the work of over 400 artists. Alongside the galleries, Collect Open provided a platform for 15 individual artists to show ambitious and conceptual craft-led installations.
