Words don't get much more beautiful than this one. We tried with all our designs to incorporate an element of a country's flag where possible. This was a great a moment where the word and national flag were a match made in heaven🌛🇹🇷 designed by @tonihollis. From our #Untranslation series. Now hanging in flag form in Market Row, Brixton.
This is me in action chairing a panel event for @peldonrose during #LDF17 . I'll be at it again at 8.15am on Wednesday 01 November when we're discussing What Makes a Successful Office Refurbishment at @kantartns. If you're planning an office refurb, come along to find out more about best practice, working trends and change management - register at http://bit.ly/2z1KuNV

Congratulations @leebroom who we partner with each year during London Design Festival. 💫💫💫
#LDF16 saw the flagship store in Shoreditch taken over with Opticality, an illusion of infinite light presented using mirrors and black and white geometric patterns.
Broom presented ‘ON REFLECTION’ for #LDF17 in celebration of his 10 year anniversary with the Festival. The exhibition within the Rivington Street store reflected on his decade in design with an installation of some of his most iconic designs reimagined in all-black, and presented in a tableau with a surreal twist.
Pigeon Service Installation by Christien Meindertsma pays homage to the homing pigeons used for espionage during the First World War. It was part of Kvadrat My Canvas Exhibition which was part of Design Frontiers, Somerset House during the London Design Festival in September 2017. @kvadrattextiles @somersethouse @designfrontiers #christienmeindertsma#somersethouse @l_d_f_official #ldf17#designfrontiers#kvadrat#canvas#textiles
Experimenter extraordinaire @jamesmshaw has had a pretty hectic September. The South London-based designer, whose work ranges from extruded plastic furniture whipped up from a hand-made gun (yes, really!) to designing hot tubs for the Swedish wilds, exhibited in three ground-breaking shows. His latest range of furniture, Modular Mechanics, was shown at The New Materiality, a @craftscouncil showcase of seven experimental makers at the first ever @tresorcontemporarycraft in Basel. James also had work in two @l_d_f_official shows, @modern_design_review’s Ready Made Go at the Ace Hotel and @studioinekehans’ The Last London Salon in Brompton. Find our interview with one of South London's most experimental designers on our News page. #JamesShaw
Hello, colour! This is my kind of pop-up. At the luscious @peterpilotto townhouse during @londonfashionweek and #LDF17 , the space was transformed top to bottom to create a beautiful, welcoming environment to show clothing collections to clients. A space to meet and be inspired! #interiorsinspo#thecreativeedit#interiordesign#colorinspo

The EvA chair, a collaboration between @eva_bespoke (my long term partnership with @elliemac.embroidery) and @studioelizabethrose. Freehand machine embroidered printed heavy weight cotton sateen, fully restored Mid Century occasional chair, with beech lacquered legs. It was a pleasure to combine forces with Liz from @studioelizabethrose for this project, and for Ellie and I, under the guise of EvA (Ellie Vs Amelia) to expand on our joint portfolio and enter into the realm of furniture.
We are both alumni of the London College of the Arts, but we met in Brighton studying Art Foundation in the late 90s.
In 2014 we joined forces to create EvA, producing Fine Art textiles pieces for high- end commercial and private clients across the world. Utilising digital technology and traditional textile artistry, we aim to create a dialogue between fast and slow textile practice and the cross over of fine art, design and craft. So that is us, and this is our chair!
Last month we hosted an event for this years @l_d_f_official. All based on the topic of consumption, with brilliant panelist’s from @depop @indexventures and @allplants. We’ve packed it all into our latest podcast [soundcloud.com/wearedesignstudio] with some reflections from our Principal James over on the blog. We had a lot of fun on this one! Enjoy and let us know what you think. #LDF17

Another #throwbackthursday because, well, why not? We're thinking back to @promemoria_italy's exhibition 'Ten Bright Years', celebrating ten years of Promemoria here at the Pimlico Road and ten years of innovative lighting design. 'Icosaedro' (pictured) is Promemoria's new lighting system which can be applied to any of their existing lighting collection, developed due to the need to replace traditional incandescent lighting with new LED technology. This beautiful creation is the result of 3 years work and provides even LED lighting around 360 degrees, unlike traditional lighting. Impressive, don't you think?
