Grant Gibson

Grant Gibson is a renowned design, architecture and craft writer and podcaster based in the UK. His work has been featured in publications including The Observer, The Guardian, New Statesman, FRAME, Dwell and House & Garden. Grant’s career in magazines includes roles as editor at Blueprint, FX deputy editor and executive editor of the RIBA Journal. More recently, he has been the editor of Crafts and a contributing editor of MARK, the Dutch architecture title. 

In 2019, Grant launched his critically acclaimed podcast ‘Material Matters with Grant Gibson’. In each episode he talks to a designer, maker, artist or architect about a material or technique with which they are intrinsically linked and discovers how it changed their lives and careers.

Since its launch, the series has attracted more than 525,000 downloads globally, has received recommendations from the likes of The Observer, Wallpaper and Dezeen, and won the 2020 prize for “Best Podcast” at the Archiboo Awards.

In 2022, Material Matters evolved into an annual design fair.  This year, it takes place at Bargehouse, Oxo Tower Wharf, from 18-21 September. Writing in Dezeen, design critic Max Fraser said the show “dares to rattle the status quo by creating an optimistic forum for new material experimentations”.
