The team, KM and EM
Kirsty Minns and Erika Muller met for the first time in 2008 the Established & Sons, a British firm renowned furniture manufacturer.

"Out of the norm." Their rich experience covering a wide spectrum of design processes - design, product development, art direction and visual communication - Kirsty and Erika have collaborated for this first show 'Vera Chapter One' by inviting a number of talented designers to play around to a common theme.
