Well Done, Wor Bettina!!

Last night was the opening of the Design Event 09 Design Mart at Baltic. Quite a few of the Mushrooms were there exhibiting their beautiful products, namely Michael Armstrong (Afid Design), Sarah Blood, Nick James and Bettina Nissen

Bettina, whose been based at the Mushroom Works for just over a year now, had a particularly good evening. Her beautiful Rustic bench won the Design Network North prize for most innovative item in the mart. 

The Mart is on Friday Saturday and Sunday (16th-18th October) and there are some super pieces for sale. Definitely worth a look!
