Admired recently at the Future Perfect: the Rust range of trays, vases, shallow bowls, and more from French-born Ariane Prin, a graduate of the Royal College of Art and protégé of British designer Jasper Conran (she worked with him on his lines for Waterford and Wedgwood). We especially like her hefty circular trays, ideal for anchoring a table or serving as a drinks tray.

Above: For her Rust range, Prin mixes discarded metal particles from workshops around London (key cutters, for example) with gypsum-based materials to create her subtly metallic pieces.
Above: The Rust Medium Tray 69 is $635 at the Future Perfect.
Above: The Rust Box 61 is $470 from the Future Perfect. Each piece is tagged with a numbered brass signature plate.
