For the duration of the London Design Festival (13-21 September), you’ll be able to see us making magic (plus the odd three-legged stool) in the windows of Forge & Co opposite the Ace Hotel, the East London Design District ‘hub’. Join us to meet an array of designer-makers who will be popping in to add to our growing window artwork throughout the week. We will also be joined by Nonplus, Mark Tallowin and a selection of craftsmen to look out for. Meanwhile, James Bowthorpe will be introducing a screening of his Hudson River Project, featuring an exclusively commissioned soundtrack by Mogwai.

We’re inviting our contributors, collaborators, friends and followers to drop by to sketch or doodle a favourite piece of design - it could be a highlight from this year’s LDF or a classic piece from the archives. Come along, put it on paper and we’ll add it to our collection in the window.
