Brompton Design District: Cromwell Place, ‘The Farm Shop’ and the V&A
Brompton Design District, under the theme of 'conviviality', delved into how design shapes positive relationships among people, the spaces they reside in, and the broader world. At the heart of this district, Cromwell Place buzzed with activity, showcasing a diverse range of designers from budding talents to established figures.
Fels, showcasing the best in contemporary design, presented ‘The Farm Shop’, a project by designer Marco Campardo, architect Guan Lee and curator Luca Lo Pinto. This initiative brought together myriad designers, architects and studios to create a functional exhibition space paired with dining homewares. Beyond mere product display, the emphasis was on community exchange and how design can connect us deeply to our surroundings.
Lastly, the Victoria and Albert Museum (V&A), renowned for its focus on decorative arts and design, showcased the Emerging Designer Commission. Within its halls, Andu Masebo breathed new life into a vintage Alfa Romeo Cloverleaf, repurposing it into domestic furnishings.
