For Clerkenwell Design Week London studio will again be hosting an exhibition by the furniture and product design students of The Sir John Cass School of Art, Architecture and Design at London Metropolitan University. The students have been asked to design and create products for leading London design company SCP, to fit with its Boxed collection which is typified by items that can be posted easily to customers. The pieces exhibited are either products or furniture ranging from small tables, stools and storage to a dustpan and brush and reflect the existing collection’s use of materials and processes. The students will be hosting free drop in workshops from 13.30 each day so visitors can craft a selection of small products to take away with them.
