Haidée Drew is British London based designer, Royal College of Art Alumni and a background in contemporary craft. Her practice focuses on creating sculptural objects with function and a visual dialogue with the past. She is inspired by historical collections and houses, together with her fascination of everyday objects. Carefully piecing together her research into objects that are rich with intrigue and narrative.
Haidée's sensitivity to the original artifacts are shown in her pairing of craft and technology, new and old, drawing on a range of materials, and a combination of hand and age old manufacturing techniques. Haidée realises her designs by bringing together a wealth of carefully selected UK artisans and manufacturers as well as utilising her own background in metalwork, casting and computer aided design and manufacture.
