The Design & Crafts Council Ireland (DCCoI) is the national economic organisation for the design and craft industry in Ireland, whose mission is to promote its create and commercial potential.
Sandford PR has worked with the DCCoI since 2012 on all their London activity. Most recently, iconic London retailer Heal's and DCCoI collaborated on Design Ireland At Heal's in March 2016, presenting the largest retail showcase of Irish-made design in London for decades. At the flagship Tottenham Court Road showroom, Irish creativity was celebrated with a capsule collection of Irish furniture, lighting, ceramics, textiles, glass and gifts alongside a hugely successful programme of in-store demonstrations.
In 2015, the DCCoI were at London Design Festival with ‘Ó’ – Design and Craft from Ireland at Tent London 2015, a highly acclaimed exhibition which featured 30 designers who are passionate about materials and production. This formed one of several Irish events in London at that time for Irish Design 2015 (ID2015).
