After a few hours of drooling over at The college building I moved onto Victoria House to grab a bite to eat and check out the contemporary pop up shops. I really should have left my purse at home, I wanted to buy sooooo many things! There were over 50 shops selling everything from art to ceramics as well as a mini food court.
I felt I could be here a while so needed some sustenance to keep me going. I discovered Gelupo the first time I visited Design Junction a few years back and In my opinion they are the best Italian Ice-cream makers In London! If you are ever in Soho, do check out their store.
When it comes to design I love all that is bold, bright and a little unusual. These brands were my personal highlights from Victoria House…
Octaevo is a Mediterranean inspired company based in Barcelona, creating storytelling products for your desk and home. I particularly liked their abstract print paper vases.
Tom Pigeon is a creative studio with a simple yet striking design aesthetic. Loved the colour palette of their screen prints with touches of gold foil.
Stunning copper and mint jewellery range.
Kyoto Bowskill director of the link collective had a range of wonderful range of Furoshiki’s (hand printed, traditional Japanese wrapping cloths). They can be hung on a wall, worn as a scarf, turned into a handbag even!
Link produces contemporary furoshiki textiles through our network of artists and designers from around the world. We aim to cross cultures and generations by creating beautiful and functional products, merging international design with traditional Japanese production methods.
I couldn’t leave without buying the ‘Angles’ Furoshiki, with its bold geometric pattern inspired by origami techniques. I had to film how to attach the leather strap to the scarf as I’m sure I would have forgotten!
Giannina Capitani’s range of scarves and cushions fuelled my current obsession with Black, White & Yellow!
