A showcase of products exploring how craft, design and innovative technology are being used to enhance both athletic performance and aesthetic appeal in sport.


Sport has long been an important feature of Manchester’s cultural life. Home to two Premier League football clubs, the National Cycling CentreNational Squash Centre, and the GreatCity Games, Manchester is a big sporting city.

And design plays a huge role in sports – whether it’s making beautiful products to covet, or using cutting edge technology to make you perform faster or stronger. Ceramics and metal – materials we traditionally  think of as being used to make jewellery and homewares – are making ground breaking improvements to the way we exercise.
