The SCIN Gallery and Carefully Curated are delighted to announce their collaboration bringing you a fresh perspective and surprising materials.
“The SCIN Gallery is housed in a wonderful old warehouse style building in Clerkenwell, EC1, the heart of the architectural community in the UK. Arranged over four floors, with over 1,000 sq ft per floor, we showcase products and architectural materials from all over the globe. We are an independent showroom, both informal and informed, which is invaluable to architects and designers. Materials experts are on hand in the basement library to advise and explain, Monday to Friday, and we encourage our visitors to rummage and explore our incredible collection of over 4,000 fascinating materials samples housed in orange boxes. We are an inspirational resource for architects and designers looking for uniquely designed and sustainable solutions for their projects. SCIN also acts as a hub for networking and meet up opportunities, the perfect venue for anything from a board meeting or think tank to a product launch or trend forecasting day.”
Early 2015, the SCIN Gallery will launch their Green Room, which will be located in the existing ground floor of the gallery. Visitors (architects, designers, specifiers and students and the public) will be welcome to investigate and research cutting-edge materials in the resource centre, supported by a stimulating agenda of seminars, creative workshops and product launches. It promises to be a lively, engaging and thought-provoking programme, uniquely focussed on promoting sustainable design and construction.
Carefully Curated seeks and shares joyful things for everyday living for places and spaces for one or many people to eat, work, sleep, refresh and play.
Carefully because I care about where things come from, how they were made and by whom. Curated because our space is a collection we each arrange. Our spaces are a powerful reflection of who we are and our values. Carefully Curated celebrates products with provenance from designers and makers, whether small or large scale, who have made things with honest form and function for us to enjoy for many years.
Together, SCIN Gallery and Carefully Curated want to share stories of new materials, new manufacturing processes and new technologies that are innovative, engaging and better alternatives. Watch out for the wow factor, but perhaps not as you know it!
The SCIN Gallery’s latest exhibition “Plausible, Implausible” runs until September, at Morelands 27 Old Street, London, EC1V 9HL.
