Gallery: The Be Open Space at The Dock with Tom Dixon Stimulates the Fi...

 
The Traces 'Junk' Shop was overflowing with fun and quirky designs from a range of young designers. One of our favorite items was Madam Bottwright's Bureau by Tim Burrell-Saward and Mike Kann which combined old found furniture pieces with technology to draw us into a playful guessing game. You can read more about the Traces 'Junk' Shop in our feature post here.

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.
