Viewing  The Ralph Saltzman Prize: an annual barometer of design ingenuity

London-based designer Attua Aparicio has scooped the Design Museum’s coveted Ralph Saltzman Prize 2024 for her ingenious confections of clay and borosilicate glass waste – a byproduct of scientific glass making. See her glistening furniture, vessels and lighting at the Design Museum.

The prize is an annual barometer of emerging design talent, awarded to mark the legacy of Ralph Saltzman, a design innovator who founded Designtex. Spanish-born winner Aparicio is a multidisciplinary artist whose work blurs the boundaries between design, craft and art with an inventive and playful spirit. The borosilicate glass gives a delicious lustre to her delightfully lumpen vases and towering furniture. Experience their charm at the Design Museum until 15 April.
