People Will Always Need Plates is the creation of Hannah Dipper and Robin Farquhar.
Launched in 2004, they aim to use high quality, low volume batch production to create witty, thoughtful and stylish products as a direct antithesis to the current proliferation of cheap, throwaway design.
In keeping with their credo that good design should be used and enjoyed, treasured and shared, Hannah and Robin try to develop products that, while diverse in style and application, always retain the fundamental values of functionality and beauty.
Given their varied backgrounds (Hannah is an ex-RCA ceramist and has extensive industrial ceramics experience as well as work for Conran & Partners, while Robin, having studied industrial design at Brunel has spent most of his working life in exhibition and interior design agencies) they can offer a complete product, graphic, exhibition and interior design service alongside their core range and commissioned wares.
