Broadgate’s Shaped By Design: Pop-up Mini Market

In an exciting first, Finsbury Avenue Square, Broadgate is home to a pop-up mini market hosted by up-and-coming local London designers and artists.

Makers Mini Market, Finsbury Avenue Square at Broadgate

At the helm is internationally lauded product designer Bethan Laura Wood, who has ensured that the market will celebrate the unrivalled wealth of independent talent in the East London artistic community.

SEEN is definitely aware of a new strand in creative consciousness arising in London; that of community, in which the talented designers of tomorrow are banding together now. A response perhaps to rising costs and uncertainty surrounding post-Brexit London. Either way, it’s your opportunity to get involved in workshops whilst discovering the talented names that are likely to transform the worlds of interiors, fashion and art over the next decade. On until tomorrow 7th October.11am – 6pm.

Exhibitors include:

    • Kim Thome – London based Norwegian designer making objects, spaces and installations
    • Beth Postle – London based print and textiles designer
    • Tino Seubert – London based product, furniture & spatial designer
    • Harry Evans – London based designer selling T-shirts and small accessories
    • Silo Studio – London based design studio formed by Attua Aparicio and Oscar Wanless, experimenting with materials and processes to find new ways of making things.

The Castle at the Space: SEEN Reviews

SEEN was not that familiar with the work of Howard Barker prior to seeing ‘The Castle’ but feels she must rectify that situation. A powerful piece on the nature of masculinity, war, gender roles and the essential unreliability of religious faith, ‘The Castle’ benefits from a powerhouse cast and a stripped-back set, making the most of the Space’s environment.
