Designer of the Month: Matt Kehoe

Matt Kehoe is one of those behind-the-scenes designers whose work you will recognise, although you might not know his name.

He is the man responsible for the jewel-hued Mixology range of glassware that has given a contemporary twist to heritage brand Waterford Crystal.

Waterford-born himself and following studies in Industrial Design, he became the youngest ever person to join the company’s design department and in the subsequent years has worked his way up through the ranks to Design Director.

His latest collection is the new Gin Journey range for all the artisan gin lovers out there – and there are plenty of them – while the Diamond Line series has a timeless old Hollywood feel to it.

Whatever your poison, all are future heirloom pieces that will give a lift to any festive gathering – after all, there really is nothing like light reflecting off crystal to bring sparkle to a celebration.

Prices from £75 for a pair of Gin Journey balloon glasses. See
