This week is full of activity as we mark the annual London Design Festival with a diary of events that celebrate great design.
In collaboration with Judd Foundation, The Conran Shop presents ‘Judd at Conran’, a capsule collection of Donald Judd furniture at the Chelsea store running from the 14th September to the 7th October. Still produced and made to order from Judd Foundation, The Conran Shop is the first major retailer to sell furniture by the esteemed American artist. ‘Judd at Conran’ is an eight-piece collection comprised of five distinct chairs, library desk and standing desk and single bed made from solid wood and plywood reflecting the refinement of Judd’s design and his interest in purity of form and use of the finest construction methods.
If you are keen to see this impressive collection, you are invited to join us at a Private View of the Judd at Conran collection this Thursday from 6-9pm. Please e-mail [email protected] to be added to the guest list.
Thursday is a busy day as we partner with Fab to invite designers to present their ideas to a panel of experts, celebrated designers, journalists and galleriests at our Marylebone store. The impressive panel of chosen experts will select the best products which Fab will put into production and sell to their 10+ million members around the globe. The Call For Designers will take place on Thursday 19th September between 1pm-3pm at The Conran Shop Marylebone. If you are a budding Thomas Heatherwick or Russell Pinch in the making, email: [email protected] to register. Good Luck!
Lastly, in partnership with the West End Design District we launch the Harry Thaler 'Pressed Chair' with a designer meet and greet this Saturday at the Marylebone store. An innovative light, stackable metal chair stamped out of a single 2.5mm aluminium sheet, the chair is pressed into shape forming an ultra strong seat that is 100% recyclable and produces no waste. Harry Thaler joins us in store to chat to customers this Saturday, for further information see our events page.
