A design(ed) evening
London Design Festival 2014
On the occasion of London Design Festival we will be hosting a private tour of an exhibition of two exciting international designers.
We will get together in an intimate group to see the exhibition of the design duo, whose work struck us for its simplicity and elegance. We will be enjoying a glass of wine over a conversation with the designers and see the result of their latest collaboration.
