Raw Material Industrial Design Store was established in 2018 by Emmet Bosonnet. Emmet has a background in Engineering and has a passion for Industrial Design. The shop is located in The Chocolate Factory Creative Community on 26 Kings Inn Street in Dublin 1. The design aesthetic of the shop is very much industrial with an emphasis on product form and function. The store is carefully curated to reflect the beauty of natural raw materials like metal, wood, clay, paper and concrete. All stockists are Irish and supporting emerging Irish Designers is a key ethos of the store. There is an emphasis on sustainability and reuse and this is reflected with the efforts of each designer in their product design and packaging.
Emmet also uses the space as a studio and can be found working most days on his other passion, copper, with his emerging brand Kopper Kreation. His designs use salvaged and scrap copper to create free flowing lamps and homeware products from this beautiful material.
The store is open Wednesday to Saturday from 8am to 4pm.
