The Learned Society of Extra Ordinary Objects at Sommerset House

This unique exhibition centres on the power of imagination, narrative and storytelling within design. 30 contemporary designers, artists and makers have been invited to become the new, 21st century Fellows of the Society, and create or contribute objects to this remarkable collection. These new Fellows’ designs will present ordinary objects with extra ordinary stories, or suggest playful and surprising modifications to familiar objects, reimagining our interaction with items we encounter in our everyday lives. The exhibition runs from the 5th of July to the 3rd of September, 2017.

British Design Days Almaty

In September of 2015, we were invited by the British Council to kickstart a programme of talks and workshops in Almaty, Kazakhstan. Almaty lies on the South Eastern tip of Kazakhstan, close to the borders of China and Kyrgyzstan.  There is an increasing interest in fostering a local design scene in Kazakhstan, however, designers face major challenges, including lack of industry infrastructure and access to suppliers and producers to enable them to make and sell products. It was a fantastic trip, an insight into a new land and it’s people, culture and traditions.
