VENTED the brainchild of 23 year old Josh Scott, is a West London based, London-made lifestyle brand launched in 2018.

Josh founded the brand with the goal of 'Designing Our Universe', bringing together fresh talents and creatives to build a community and create cult design products for everyday use. The brand aims to inspire the freedom in others to define their own lifestyle.

From an enthusiasm for product design and interest in collectors’ culture, Vented has moved into creating must-have home accessories. With DIY production in mind, Vented explored the capabilities of intricate product design and how it could become a key foundation of the brand.

Using Concrete as their medium, Vented references the world around us; primarily London and the sub-cultures that co-exist on our streets, paying homage to the skate and music scenes that have helped define UK style. By innovating a home moulding and casting process ‘The Original’ (a Hand Casted Concrete Skatepark, both an art piece and also an ashtray) the first of their concrete pieces was born.

The slick designs have already been noticed and picked up by tastemakers including British singer Jorja Smith, Bakar, FTP owner Zac Clark and Lyrical Lemonade Director Cole Bennett to name a few. Albeit slightly less salubrious, CLASH Studios also hosts a few VENTED pieces amongst our shelves.

As well as stocking ‘The Original’, Selfridges will be dropping exclusive pieces which will be available in the London flagship store, Birmingham Store and online in August.
