The show room is attached to light industrial space where we would like to place some designers who need workshop space, who would then be on site for the showroom.


We are looking for designers who are essentially up and running already with their own workshops, but who do not have a formal retail outlet. Businesses need to have had some exposure through emerging creatives or a similar programmes.
