We popped out to have a look at some of the London Design Festival 2015 things today – so much inspiration – and really lovely to see some of our friends showing at Tent London in Old Truman Brewery too!
Upstairs we found these lovely little screenprinted Huguenot houses by Sam Wingate.
We fell in love with Sam’s houses! And the concept behind them…..Based on the buildings around Spitalfields they were originally part of an exhibition called “Pocket Worship”. As Sam explains:
“The illustrations are of buildings built by the Huguenot refugees, and used as places of worship. The buildings have been altered over time, being adapted by new settlers to Spitalfields. The pieces are small enough to fit into a pocket, and consider what refugees can take when fleeing persecution – religion and culture.”
Great to see his new series of sceenprints too – excited to see more of his new work now as he starts an illustration MA at the Royal College of Art.
Great to see the always brilliant work of James Brown Prints next to Sam Wingate. We love his recent series of screenprints depicting all kinds of values and calculations – such as the Fibonacci Series and the Golden Section, The Tides, Human Skeleton and many more – and all with tons of information! And they look stunning too!
We love glimpsing the work of Jonna Saarinen – always a beacon of bright bright colour!
Downstairs at Tent there was a whole section dedicated to craft from Ireland – all so beautifully laid out – we loved this loom being demonstrated – and another beautiful finished rug below.
We loved these bottles made from blown and found glass – all beautifully etched as well – stunning! They’re by Juli Bolanos-Durman.
There’s tons of free events arount the whole area as well – soooooooo much to see!! Check out the London Design Festival website!
