London Design Festival: Day 3


My third day traipsing about London for the Design Festival had me venturing east again, starting my day in Clerkenwell (that's pronounced CLARK-en-well, I learned) and then, as ever, heading back over to Shoreditch for the press preview of the much-hyped Tramshed show.

I finally got to the Tramshed in the early evening, and though they were still setting up, I was still impressed.
Upstairs at the Tramshed was a show of Studioilse's work for De La Espada.

Another Tramshed highlight was this set of enamelware from Falcon.
