BE OPEN SPACE AT THE DOCK 2012 LONDON
What is the BE OPEN SPACE at The Dock
The marketplace for emerging designers at BE OPEN SPACE at The Dock, Tom Dixon’s space in West London, which will be hosting a packed programme of London Design Festival Events. Designers will show, sell, produce and explore, the five senses in a dynamic and interactive meeting place for design enthusiasts. Pan Studio and Jail-Make are creating a site-specific installation on the Dock terrace that will reference the medieval trade markets and Florence’s Ponte Vecchio, populating the terrace with 8 self-contained wooden huts that mirror the architecture of the converted wharf building that houses Dock Kitchen Restaurant. The installation incorporates the water with a plethora of luminous ribbons cascading from the rooftops to the waters beneath. Each hut will showcase exclusive works by an exciting mix of emerging designers; confirmed participants include Studio TooGood and Technology Will Save Us.
