A Review of the Three Four Showcase at the Brick Lane Gallery

This London Design Week showcase in The Annexe of The Brick Lane Gallery featured work by Katy Goutefangea, James Tattersall and the Room 9 collective.

Geometric wrapping paper - Katy Goutefangea
It was thanks to the joys of instagram that I found out about the Three Four Showcase at The Annexe (part of The Brick Lane Gallery) when print designer Katy Goutefangea commented on one of my images and invited me along to discover her own work on show during London Design Week. Her two toned geometric wrapping paper, above, started life as a hand drawn pattern created using good old fashioned ink and a ruler. Her subtle but very beautiful designs are then printed using vegetable inks on recycled paper, and her matching textiles are screen printed by hand in-house. What a super discovery.

Formica and oak desk by James Tattersall
Cabinet maker James Tattersall has an ethos of constructing playful yet functional furniture, and this sexy Formica and oak desk comes with a handy plan chest drawer.

Wood shelves by Greg Cox
These simple but beautiful wood shelves by furniture maker Greg Cox work really well as a functional feature on the wall.

coat hooks by Guy Brown
Also showing were two fellows who together make up the Room 9 collective. These eye catching coat hooks by Guy Brown have a cool 80s touch.

Guy Brown candle holders
These brass and aluminium candle holders are also by Guy Brown, and were inspired by bombs! His sugar spoons were made cast from wooden models: one roughly hewn by Guy, the other by a professional green wood worker: I love the contrast.
