Mineheart was launched in 2010 by designers Brendan Young and Vanessa Battaglia.
The company name Mineheart was inspired by the Shakespearian quote: "Mine eye and heart..." to symbolise their dual passions; love for tradition and eye for contemporary design which is combined in often surprising and delightful ways within the Mineheart collection.
"The idea behind Mineheart is to create a playground for creativity and discovery, where art meets design, and poetry meets industry. We try to inject a sense of wonder into everyday objects and spaces around us, telling stories and creating things that are truly surprising," Young&Battaglia
Key to Mineheart's ethos is also the support of British design and manufacturing. Most Mineheart products are designed, made and assembled in the UK, this enables more control over production and quality, giving greater flexibility and the ability to offer custom made and bespoke pieces for clients. They are all made by passionate people, who love, live and breathe their craft.
