So, first day out and about enjoying the treats of the London Design Festival.  With the Pope in town traffic melt down was expected, so cycled down to the South Bank Centre to see the brilliant THOMAS HEATHERWICK's Spun Seat.  Really great design and everyone rolling around in them seemed to love them too.  Lots of smiles and laughter which is always a good thing.  Read more here


Then on to STUDIO TOOGOOD's "Super Natural" project in South Kensington.  Foraging, collecting and observing in the English countryside is the theme of the show and, as usual with all of Faye Toogood's work, it's a real visual treat.  The pungent smell of wild, exotic mushrooms, laid out on barrows as you enter the building is overpowering, both for the eyes and the nose!  

And then into the main space which instantly makes you feel like your entering a magical minimal forest, full of strange and beautiful things to marvel over.  ASSEMBLAGE 1 is being launched at this event, a simple but clever furniture collection, the first from Studio Toogood.  Love it.  Read more here


A quick snack care of the on-site Bramble Cafe 


and then head home - happy and tired.

Looking forward to the next 10 days of London Design Festival - so much to more here
