Description

Talk and Tour: Craft & Collaboration at The Department Store


Architects Squire & Partners moved to The Department Store in summer 2017, having entirely reimagined a dilapidated Edwardian building allowing the existing fabric and layers of history to inform the new design. Collaborating with craftspeople and furniture makers, the restored building provides an exciting array of workspaces for the various design disciplines within the practice.

Squire & Partners’ architecture and interior design teams will present their concept and document the evolving design process, along with a series of key collaborators discussing bespoke elements created for The Department Store including: pattern and print designers Eley Kishimoto; Danish furniture manufacturer Carl Hansen; material artists Based Upon; specialist joinery companies Interior iD and Opus Magnum; bespoke rug makers Laguna and British lighting brand Original BTC.

The event starts with a welcome drink followed by a presentation and guided tour of The Department Store, and will finish with a drink on Squire and Partners’ Upstairs rooftop space.

Craft & Collaboration is part of UNDER/EXPOSED, a design series hosted by Squire and Partners in their new Brixton office, The Department Store. Providing a platform for the area’s finest creative talent, the dynamic line-up includes a conceptual fashion installation, printmaking, embroidery, typography, leather and papercraft as well as talks and a maker market.

Brixton Design Trail is a collaborative creative network that provides a platform for showcasing a wealth of homegrown talent during the London Design Festival. We have a mission to place design and creativity in the public realm making it accessible for the whole community to enjoy.
