Design Junction

Added Value?

"The Crafts Council launches this new touring exhibition under the umbrella of this year's London Design Festival. Through a selection of crafts gathered under six strands - materials, traditional skills, brands, bespoke, experience and everyday - the show explores the idea of value and luxury in design and crafts, asking if our understanding of the latter is being redefined by such design issues as quality and craftsmanship. Entrance is free via pre-registration at the Design Junction website."

More delicious design from the refreshments of Gelupo. Their gelato concentrates on fresh flavours without heavy fat contents. For the festival they even had some exclusive flavours designed by Michael Sodeau including Spruce & Birch (a real palette cleanser plunging your senses into a dense forest after heavy rain) and pine nut & fennel (tasty and textured)

great geometric displays
