The East London Design Show opens tomorrow, Thursday 5th December at the Old Truman Brewery and runs until Sunday 8th December. There will be 38 brand new designers of product, interiors and jewellery showing their wares alongside some more established independent designers and makers.
As well as the show and tell, there are a whole series of ‘Design your own Christmas’ workshops and demonstrations taking place over the four days. You can even try your hand at a bit of upcycling with (Re)Design, the social enterprise on a mission to promote sustainable design.
Other exhibitors I shall be checking out include Mind the Cork, who as the name suggests make things for the table out of cork; Galapagos who refresh mid-century vintage chairs with some wholly contemporary prints, such as this 1960’s German Marchena armchair that has been reupholstered in Parris and Wakefield’s new Zig Zig fabric; handwoven storage from cuvcuv; and handwoven textiles from Lawsonia to name a few.
