Carpenter's Workshop Gallery LDF 2017

LDF17: Mayfair Design District

One of the highlights of the London Design Festival this year was visiting the newly established Mayfair Design District. Mazzoleni Gallery in particular stood out with its show ‘(Un)Comfort Zone’ by the Milan-based Dimore Studio, who created five impactful and atmospheric room settings that visitors could view through small portals within the gallery space. The Carpenters Workshop Gallery also stood out with its exhibition with design curator, Lidewij Edelkoort, to highlight young talent from Europe’s best design schools. The exhibition unveiled works from ECAL (Switzerland), Royal College of Art (United Kingdom), École Nationale Supérieure des Arts Décoratifs (France), Royal Danish Design Academy (Denmark), LUCA School of Arts (Belgium) and Design Academy Eindhoven (The Netherlands). ‘Chromatic Sequences’ at Galerie Kreo presented work by Hella Jongerius highlighting her masterful use of colour and Gallery FUMI showcased ‘GLASS.MEKANO’ – a show by Thomas Lemut that explored the restraints of working with glass to produce functional pieces of furniture.
