Where form meets function

Founded in 2004, People Will Always Need Plates celebrates iconic British design on everyday objects – cups, plates, saucers, and tea towels. The idea is as simple as the end product, each piece while diverse in style and application, always retains the fundamental values of functionality and beauty. The diversity of chosen subject, ranging from Royal accommodations to power plants, relays the breadth of partners Hannah Dipper and Robin Farquhar shared interest in the history of British design. The wares produced by People Will Always Need Plates are perfect gifts for design buff friends… and if you’ve got a horse lover in the family, we suggest the Ascot Racecourse Mug.

A special edition Royal Festival Hall Tea Towel is shown above. The mug, and more, after the leap.
