Blink Events: Super Design

Last week, the Inn team invited me to join them at the Super Design exhibition in Victoria House, Bloomsbury. We were expecting something much more art oriented, as this was the same week as Freize was being held, but in fact this was product, lighting and furniture oriented- perhaps this would have been more at home as part of London’s Design Festival?

This was the 4th Super Design exhibition, the brainchild of gallery owner Patrick Brillet. The mission of Super Design is to bring together collections from leading international galleries and pioneering designers, featuring specially commissioned, unique and limited edition pieces from galleries including The Apartment, D&A-Lab and Vessel Gallery.

It was an intriguing selection of diverse products, styles, materials and aesthetics. We spotted things that we hadn’t previously seen from designers like Tom Dixon, as well as seeing things from designers that we hadn’t previously know, like the amazing folded paper shade from Michael Young.

Here are some of our favourite pieces. Enjoy!
