  2. 100% Design, WGSN Homebuildlife talk

    Media

    Team Mills went to the 100% Design WGSN Homebuildlife talk last week. It was a really interesting talk so give it a watch when you get a chance.

    ‘Experience Design is a movement that puts people – not users or consumers – at the heart of a brand or a product, whether it is a fork, a shower head, a car or a store. We always ask how a product or brand should function and look, but how should and could it feel? What kind of experiences can designers and brands give people that bring a shared sense of magic and discovery. Presented by leading trend site WGSN Homebuildlife’s Creative Director, Lisa White’.

  4. Maison & Objet, Paris

    Media

    Earlier this month we visited Maison & Objet, part of Paris Design Week. The show spanned eight massive halls and covered everything from furniture to taxidermy. Aside from common themes such as raw materials, we saw some particularly effective use of space to hero products, bold colour blocking to accentuate details and simple geometric shapes across many of the design objects on show.

  5. Media Space, Science Museum

    Media

    I recently attended the launch of a really lovely new exhibition space that is due to offer programmes of interdisciplinary work drawing on the National Photography Collection and other Science Museum features and collections. The first show is called ‘Only in England’ and features work from photographers Tony Ray-Jones and Martin Parr. There is also a little theatre room showing some new work from Matt Pyke of Universal Everything.

    The exhibition space itself is beautifully presented with large-scale graphics, spacious displays of the work and little cubby holes where you can watch films about the artists/photographers currently on display. They have some beautiful print work too. Well worth a trip if you get some time – the photography exhibition has a charge but the Universal Everything installation is free to see. The cafe next to the exhibition space is really nicely designed too. This programme runs until mid-March 2014.

  7. Imprint Exhibition

    Media

    Team Mills visited the Imprint exhibition of printed design at Craft Central on Thursday. Billed as a ‘cross-disciplinary exhibition of printed design’ there was everything from traditional silkscreen posters to pattern-imprinted vases. All items were for sale at varying prices including many pieces by screen printers, Thornback and Peel. It's definitely worth keeping an eye on the place as they have exhibitions throughout the year.
