Tent London/ Pure design event 2014 (18-21 September)
Being Self-employed and spending the majority of my time working by myself, trips away from the workbench to see what the best of the rest are up to, and especially to trade shows like this feel like a mini-holiday. Tent London was “Just down the road” at the Truman Brewery in Brick Lane. This year’s show felt fantastic. It was wonderful to see Flock’s first appearance at the event. Congratulations on their show-stopping Cocktail chair pieces (This time created by Florrie & Bill- great work folks!)
Amongst all the great design talent on show the show that really got me all hot under the collar (It was baking hot in there!) was the Second Sitters stand which was literally like being in
Upholstery workshop-cum-laboratory where Hannah Stanton & Jude Dennis of Second Sitters presented the”20 Centimes Chair”,
which became an opportunity for visitors to get involved in a very special ongoing upholstery project…
I couldn’t help but leave a few written thoughts which by now I hope are secretly and securely stuffed (along with possibly hundreds of other contributions) into
Their memory chair .
Chatting to Hannah & Jude about the technical aspects of some of their wonderful furniture/art pieces was thoroughly inspirational!
