It is September and in the world of design that means one thing. The London Design Festival.
So, for this LDF and as part of the brilliant South East Makers Club* we are totally proud to welcome the superb Irish design studio Superfolk to the Simple Shape Studio and present:
MEANDER; a solo exhibition by SUPERFOLK.
Occasionally an email arrives and really improves your day doesn't it...? When Gearoid & Jo-Anne suggested we did something together for London Design Festival, it was a glorious moment! I have loved Superfolk's work and their approach for a long time. These guys are calm designers; thoughtful, skilled and careful. The best kind. Inviting them to wend their way to South East London for LDF was a chance too good to miss.
They are are based on the West Coast of Ireland with the stunning County Mayo landscape forming the bedrock and the backdrop to their life and their work. Playing to their strengths and taking their cues from their environment they have developed a series of new pieces allowing the bends and curves of the river to dictate the form.
The Meander Collection includes polished brass and oiled black steel candlestick holders in sinuous curves as well as new printed textiles and block printed washi-paper wall hangings. These will sit alongside Superfolk's iconic trivets and leather stool.
AND, Superfolk’s designers will be giving FREE demonstrations of ink line drawings over the weekend!

*South East Makers Club - well, I am totally biased! I’ve worked with a tiny group of passionate volunteers to make sure that the second South East Makers Club builds on the success of the first. The programme of events, exhibitions, talks, shows and workshops running throughout the last weekend of the festival is just brilliant! Check out the website and plan your weekend! Biased, yes. I don't care! southeastmakersclub.co.uk
