We’re delighted to be hosting two selected showcase selling events as part of this year’s London Design Festival.  We’ll be open over two weekends with 10 different exhibitors each week. Explore a diverse range of ceramics from tableware to decorative objects, ceramic jewellery and striking one-off collectors’ pieces, all reflecting the wide use of clay in design.

Over the two weekends of London Design Festival, visitors to In Design @ Battersea can take part in an interactive ceramic activity to create a growing modelled installation, inspired by the surrounding cityscape area of Battersea Power Station. We hope the public will contribute and enjoy the creative experience, learning new clay skills and observing the surroundings in closer detail.

Roaming around the customer shopping area of this year’s Design Festival Design Junction show, we found the full range of a brand we’d already found love for when spotting their prints in The Barbican shop. 

Alternative Love Blueprint – A History of Alternative Music

Dorothy is a graphic-designed heaven for music lovers, film lovers, typography lovers, brutalist lovers, culture lovers – so many great intriguing and clever art works in print to choose from, as well as a few extras of tea towels, mugs and ornaments. 

They create prints that we can imagine were dreamt up over a pint of two and then laborious hours from there spent designing and creating the content for them. 

We love the process and train of thought for the print works and our favourites include the ‘Alternative Love Blueprint – A History of Alternative Music‘ (£35) and the ‘Lost Destination: The Haçienda‘ (£35)
