International designed the Puck System for printmakers Puck Studio, who are also based in the London borough of Hackney, to be used for live printmaking at an art fair.

Designers Marc Bell and Robin Grasby graduated from Northumbria University in 2009 and went on to found International a year later. They recently picked up third prize at the [D3] Contest for young designers in Cologne for their modular lamp shades made from layered aluminium.

Designed in Hackney is a Dezeen initiative to showcase world-class architecture and design created in the borough, which is one of the five host boroughs for the London 2012 Olympic Games as well as being home to Dezeen’s offices. We’ll publish buildings, interiors and objects that have been designed in Hackney each day until the games this summer.
