Mikael Söderlindh had been working in the advertising industry for 10 years before he and long-time friend Viktor Tell started their Happy Socks adventure in the spring of 2008. Their intention was to spread happiness by turning an everyday essential into a colourful design piece, with rigid standards of high quality, craftsmanship and creativity. They are currently sold in over 70 countries, with established stockists across the globe.

Sculpture in the City, Art for Everyone

SEEN thoroughly enjoyed a preview of the 18 new artworks around the financial district’s square mile. Set up by The City of London in 2010, this excellent initiative expands its footprint every year, improving the area and proving that when people are happy, they work better.

Alex Evans at the Foundry Gallery, Chelsea Quarter: LDF17

The astute reader will have noticed that SEEN loves art about London. There are many artists in this city who draw (pun intended) their inspiration from it, none more so than Alex Evans whose fractal renderings hint at the entropic nature of urban life and perhaps also our anxieties and isolation in the 21st century. His latest exhibition ‘Invisible Systems’ can be seen at the Foundry Gallery, tucked away off the King’s Road until 26th October.
