ON A GIANT CORAL FARAWAY

Saturday, October 5th, 2013

Our doll’s house, one of 20 designed by a great group of architects, designers and artists have been revealed in the Architects Journal. Luke and I designed and made our house, small things take a very long time to make! We filled our house with a few of our favourite things plus specially commissioned pieces by artists Ishbel Myerscough, Chantal Joffe, Lemn Sissay and Betty Fraser Myerscough. Martyn Evans very clever idea as part of a fundraising year at the Cathedral Group for Kids. The Auction is open and ready for bids.

A DOLLS’ HOUSE PROJECT, CATHEDRAL GROUP

Thursday, September 19th, 2013

Last night was the official launch event of A Dolls’ House project by Cathedral Group at the new Domus Showroom. To launch the online bidding for 20 unique houses designed by internationally recognised architects and designers including Zaha Hadid ,David Adjaye, AHMM and us before they are auctioned by Bonhams for the charity KIDS in November 2013.

This is the sketch of our doll’s house we are not exhibiting but we will show you around our house very soon. We hope someone will buy it as we have spent many hours making it. We are extremely grateful to artists Ishbel Myerscough, Chantal Joffe, Betty Fraser Myerscough and poet Lemn Sissay for kindly making some very amazing pieces of work for our house.

GETTING LAID

So exciting my geometric floors for a new school by architects AHMM, are taking shape.

PINK LADY

Thursday, July 11th, 2013

Today at the New London Design Awards in the Guildhall Great Hall. Amazing place. Our table. Me and Martyn. Unfortunately we did not win but we were shortlisted for the Movement Cafe and that was amazing. So we were all very pleased on this beautiful sunny day.

WE WON!

Wednesday, June 5th, 2013

Last night in our absence The Movement Cafe won the Hospitality & Workplace Interiors category of the Design Week Awards. We feel very proud, there was a strong shortlist.

LIFE IS LIKE RIDING A BICYCLE. TO KEEP YOUR BALANCE YOU MUST KEEP MOVING. ALBERT EINSTEIN

Sunday, May 19th, 2013

Yesterday was the last day of the Movement Cafe and I went to have a last look, I always knew it was a temporary structure but it had felt that the cafe had taken root and until I arrived I had no idea how I would feel about it going and I have to admit I felt very sad and did not want to say goodbye to it. But it was lovely to listened all the stories about the cafe and how people have such affection for it and how it brightens their lives and how they feel they will miss it and don’t want it to go. Here are my last photos before it is dismantled. But all is not lost, many parts of the cafe are going to be reused in different projects so it is moving on…..

ON THE WALL

Saturday, November 26th, 2011

(I am still catching up with posts.) Here we are completing the record installation at The Old Vinyl Factory. Very satisfying!

THE KING IS CUSTOMER

Sunday, October 23rd, 2011

‘The King’ has turned out to be the theme of this week. Yesterday at Typolondon, Julian Zimmermann and King Bansah did a great presentation and all for a very good cause.

HAPPY 1st BIRTHDAY TO US

Wednesday, April 6th, 2011

Obviously we have to use Lemmy’s ‘Ace of Spades’ lyrics to celebrate our first birthday.

NEEDLE TO THE PLASTIC

Sunday, January 16th, 2011

I bought a new stylus for my old deck this week – first time in 10 years.  So, inspired by a visit Morag and I paid to the British Music Experience at the O2 yesterday,  I spent all this morning rifling through my singles enjoying them as much for the covers as the songs. It’s just not the same listening on iTunes or Spotify.  I just love that crackle as the needle hits the plastic…

HIGHLINE

Monday, November 15th, 2010

In New York recently I finally got to see the Highline Park.  it’s the most perfect example of how an old, rotting piece of city infrastructure can be turned, by good designers, and committed people into one of the most beautiful parts of the city.  It runs from The Meatpacking District to 34th Street – a good chunk of downtown Manhattan – zig-zagging it’s way up above 10th Avenue under, over and through buildings.  It’s planted brilliantly, there are cafes along the way and great places to just sit and hang out. (more…)

PEARLY KING OF WAPPING

On my Sunday walk down Columbia Road I came across these guys and bought my remembrance poppy from them.

Making cushions…

Wednesday, August 18th, 2010

All the seating and the screen for the outdoor Silent Cinema at The Deptford Project are made by the designers and artists working in the arches on the site.  Here is Zoe from Crafty Bitches making the cushions for the seats. Tickets are on sale now from The Deptford Project’s website here.

Movies in Deptford

Monday, August 9th, 2010

In September we’re doing our own version of London outdoor cinema at The Deptford Project.  Carlos and Joe have designed the seating from old palettes.  This is them trying out ideas.  The textile designers in one of the arches are making cushions from vintage fabrics.  We’re doing Silent Cinema – where you sit like on a plane, watching the film through headphones, soaking up the atmosphere of being in a crowd outside on a warm evening without any of the unwanted noise.  We’re having an 80’s weekend (Breakfast Club), Horror (American Werewolf) and Cult (Clockwork Orange).

New life at Deptford

Monday, August 9th, 2010

It’s 2 years since we installed the train carriage cafe in Deptford that Morag designed.  Now that the recession is easing the project is up and running again and I’ve been working with a local team to populate the site – the old railway yard to Deptford High Street Station.  The arches have been cleaned up and let to local creative types – this is Insa’s Custom Paint Shop, a gallery where the artist will be custom painting cars (more pics to come).  There are furniture makers, textile designers, artists and a cycle workshop that trains homeless people to start bicycle repair businesses.

ROYALIST

Monday, June 28th, 2010

Off to NLA tomorrow (Tuesday) to speak at a Design for London event as part of the London Festival of Architecture.  Going to talk about a project I’ve been working on in The Royal Docks.  This is Millennium Mills, the old Spillers factory.  It’s HUGE, empty and a tiny part of the enormous space just East of Canary Wharf which is London’s next big development zone.  One of the biggest enclosed, man-made stretches of water in the world. An amazing place.

WARSAW NEON

Tuesday, June 22nd, 2010

Just found this picture on my phone of a beautiful neon that I saw in the Museum of Modern Art in Warsaw.  It’s the sign from a cinema called Skarpa. In the 60s and 70s, Warsaw was awash with neon, at the urging of the government – they saw it as a way of making the city seem modern and forward thinking. Unfortunately, many of the signs were torn down after the end of Communist rule in a similar attempt to make the city seem modern.  Now, some are being restored and put back.  This one is in the museum’s temporary home – and old department store – until their new building opens in 2015.

INEKE HANS AT ARAM GALLERY

Monday, June 14th, 2010

Aram Gallery’s contribution to this year’s London Design Festival is going to be the first UK solo show for my friend, the Dutch designer Ineke Hans.  We first worked together in 1998 when she was part of the first designersblock at The Old Truman Brewery in Brick Lane – feels like last week.  A version of the show opens in Arnhem next week so a chance to see it means advance publicity for London.  That’s this week’s job.
