“Being involved in Cockpit is a real privilege. The organisation is a pioneering innovator and champion of a crucial sector of our creative economy. As people increasingly want a real connection with the provenance of their consumption, Cockpit’s mission to celebrate the maker, as much as the designer, is an increasingly contemporary one that I look forward to learning from, as much as supporting.”
