"We believe that the objects we surround ourselves with everyday should be more than just functional, they should be made of stories, love, art and poetry in order to meaningfully exist..."
Mineheart was launched in 2010 by designers Brendan Young and Vanessa Battaglia.
The company name Mineheart was inspired by the Shakespearian quote: "Mine eye and heart..." to symbolise their dual passions; love for tradition and eye for contemporary design which is combined in often surprising and delightful ways within the Mineheart collection.
“The idea behind Mineheart is to create a playground for creativity and discovery, where art meets design, and poetry meets industry. We try to inject a sense of wonder into everyday objects and spaces around us, telling stories and creating things that are truly surprising,” Young&Battaglia
Key to Mineheart’s ethos is also the support of British design and manufacturing. Most Mineheart products are designed, made and assembled in the UK, this enables more control over production and quality, giving greater flexibility and the ability to offer custom made and bespoke pieces for clients. They are all made by passionate people, who love, live and breathe their craft.
At Mineheart, we are always looking for inspirational work, new materials and interesting collaborations. We collaborate with artists from various backgrounds and medias where their world meets ours in a complementary and surprising way. We have enjoyed working with artists such as Himitsuhana, Chad Wys, Angela Rossi, Joao Figueiredo and Courtney Brims who’s work fits perfectly within the Mineheart mindset, often mixing or twisting classical ideas in new and unexpected ways.
We are constantly working on new ideas, and we only produce things we really really like. Our work brings us joy and we hope our products transmit that into the homes they are used in, and that we can continue on this exciting journey of art and discovery for many years to come ;-)
