During London Design Festival I visited a few of the 58 participants of the Shoreditch Design Triangle; one of my favourites being the launch of Made In Ratio’s new showroom opened by a brand new installation called Alchemy. Inspired by nature and mathematic geometry the installation explores the narrative behind each design – a key part of Made In Ratio’s fundamental approach to design and their urge to push boundaries.
Made In Ratio is a new brand curated by Brodie Neill, a London-base Australian designer whose aim is to create a focus on experimental processes and European skill.
“There is no shortage of voluptuous forms in Made in Ratio’s debut collection, but as its name suggests, Neill’s interest is to balance form and function, art and design, craft and manufacture. Everything is in ratio.”

WHERE: TRAFALGAR SQUARE
WHO: JASPER MORRISON
Visiting A Place Called Home at the AirBnB exhibition during the LDF…
So I managed to take a look around the AirBnB exhibition called A Place Called Home – reimagined living spaces created by top designers.
Immediately I was drawn to this exhibition space by British product and furniture designer, Jasper Morrison.
His room appeared to be a homage to the pigeons of Trafalgar Square and was created for a pigeon keeper. Clad with plywood, one of my favourite materials, it contained some of his more important furniture pieces like the December Chair (2012) and the Glo Ball (1999). It also featured a wall clock he had designed in 2008 for Japanese firm, Muji, to produce.
Jasper Morrison has a shop where you can buy his amazing pieces too.
