Christmas Open Studios 2013 @ Cockpit Arts
Craftsmanship and original designs from talented designers-makers at Cockpit Arts last weekend. Next weekend it’s the Deptford Open Studios.
The latest makeover of Tate Britain includes a circular staircase in the Rotunda, Art Deco patterns and the new café. Redesigned by Caruso St John Architects.
Serpentine Sackler Gallery
First there is the building: a former gunpowder depot, which has been restored and redesigned by Zaha Hadid at the grounds of Hyde Park. Then there is the opening show: Today We Reboot The Planet by Adrián Villar Rojas. A large-scale sculptural work together with a room full of clay tests. Even the bricks laid over the gallery’s stone floor are an integral part of the installation.

Drawing inspirations for pattern, colour and print…
Bursts of Colour
It is a pure pleasure for the eyes and the soul watching the autumn colours at The Westonbirt Arboretum. Here it is “season of mists and mellow fruitfulness…”.

The London Design Festival 2013 came to an end on Sunday 22nd September. This is a small selection of what I saw running between shows and attending mine.
I was hugely impressed by this striking installation made for Established & Sons by designer Faye Toogood, The Conductor.
Beautiful handmade ceramics by Myung Nam An at this colourful place that is the Squint Limited.
It’s bye bye for another year!
