Countdown to launch: one week to go

With just one week to go until we unveil our new Planks collection designed by Max Lamb, the workshop is buzzing.  Max has been here working with us on the final design tweaks and we’ve been busy with filming, photo shoots and tying up the last few details of the show.

Max has been a joy to work with, immersing himself wholeheartedly into the project.  His complete fascination with material  and process and the way he breaks it down to its purest expression with no concern of style or fashion has been an inspiration for the whole team.

The new collection is being shown during London Design Festival as part of  FACTORY; The Reunion of Design, Craft and Industry; a collaborative show with 1882 Ltd  who will launch designs by Lindsey Edelman & Kiki van Eijk among others.  We will share our love of making and our deep knowledge of process and material through hands-on demonstrations and interactive displays in the historic Spitalfield home of our hosts, The Future Laboratory,  who will curate and host a drop-in public talk ‘Can craft be synthetic?’ on Wed 23rd September at 10:00am

The Future Laboratory, 26 Elder Street, London, E1 6BT
22 – 27 September 15 Tues 10–10 | Wed 10-7 | Thur 10-4 | Fri – Sat 10-7 | Sun 10-4
