The best way to enter The Dock space is to head downstairs and then work your way back up to the daylight. A range of Tom Dixon’s latest pieces were on display in these underground tunnels, alongside some newer additions, such as a the pop-up store from Merci concept store from Paris.

The furniture by Piet Hein Eek is an old favorite, and it’s always inspiring to get a close-up of these beautiful pieces, which are made from reclaimed wood. We even rested our feet briefly and took a minute to fully experience the Lottie Lindeman TentLamp, a design that aims to create a space within a space, and that fits perfectly with these round tables.

Outside, the emerging designers at the Be Open space were treated to a sunny morning, which allowed us to enjoy exploring their individual exhibition spaces. Each market pod echoed the architecture of the main building from the outside, but the inside was transformed by the designers to display their wares in this ‘flash’ market.
