Leading international design and architecture PR agency, Tomorrow PR is looking for a talented intern to work with its team of experts on some of the world’s most exciting design projects in 2018. The paid internship would kick-off on 05 March and run for three months.
January is one of the busiest months for Team Tomorrow and our design and architecture clients preparing for key international design fairs such as IMM and Stockholm Furniture Fair and of course, Salone del Mobile. This month I took a break from the desk to check out Lumiere London, the free annual festival of light taking place in the city from 18 – 21 January. I joined the crowds and explored the eleven installations in and around Kings Cross and Granary Square and was not disappointed. Using the event’s handy app, I navigated as many displays as possible, making sure I didn’t miss out on anything.
My highlight was the stunning Waterlicht by Dutch designer, Daan Roosegaarde. Granary Square was flooded with an intense river of blue light to raise awareness of global warming and the resulting rising sea levels. It was a dramatic and moving work. DOT by Philippe Morvan (France) was a fun and lively installation with 175 lightbulbs dancing to a soundtrack composed for Lumiere as was Identified Flying Object (IFO) by Jacques Rival (France) which encased the Birdcage by German Gymnasium in a rainbow of neon light. Lumiere is a welcome addition to the January design diary and I’d recommend you check out when it returns to town next year.

We were invited to celebrate a new collaboration between Italian textile house, Dedar and ONEROOM design studio in the recently opened ONEROOM Gallery last week. On arrival at the multi-story converted Victorian warehouse, a striking patterned entrance offset with a Paul Evans-designed metallic patchwork wardrobe welcomed us. From here we ascended into the gallery spaces to further explore ONEROOM’s unconventional approach to design, with many unexpected style twists and turns across all four floors.

Last night, I attended the private view of The Impressionists in London, French Artists in Exile (1870-1904), a vast exhibition at Tate Britain that seeks to map the connections between French and British artists, patrons and art dealers, a devastating period in French history. A series of paintings created during the Franco-Prussian war with works by Tissot, Sisley and Pissarro provides charming insight into the perception of London as seen through the eyes of visiting French artists and the works arising during their time here.

Running in parallel with the overarching London Design Festival, East London’s dedicated cultural event, Shoreditch Design Triangle (SDT) brings together brands and designers from throughout the community to celebrate the creative efforts of the East End. Always reliable for a good show, the inimitable Lee Broom marked ten years in design with On Reflection, an all-out all black edit of some of his most popular designs. The showroom took on an illusory element to surprise and delight revelers that dared to look beyond the glass. Continue reading LDF17: Shoreditch Design Triangle
I took advantage of the recent bank holiday and paid a visit to Jupiter Artland, a private contemporary art museum set over 100 acres in the countryside on the outskirts of Edinburgh. In addition to the extraordinary array of permanent works by world-renowned artists such as Antony Gormley, Anish Kapoor, Jim Lambie and Cornelia Parker, Jupiter Artland have just welcomed a new permanent artwork by esteemed Argentine artist, Pablo Bronstein.
With last week’s London Craft Week throwing so many events on our doorstep, it would have been rude to not go along for a look, so on Friday I went along to visit the Second Sitters upholstery exhibition at the Geffrye Museum in Hoxton to trace the history of the craft from past to present. The show takes you on a journey through the history of UK upholstery through a physical timeline and map, much of the storytelling centres around makers stories in East London Continue reading Second Sitters Upholstery: Evolution to Revolution at the Geffrye Museum of the Home
