The London Design Festival is here again with so much to see and do I feel quite dizzy. I’ll never get round it all but I’ve made a start with the fabulous Eley Kishimoto Living with Patterns exhibition at the Aram Gallery on Drury Lane.
Eley Kishimoto means rugs to me so I was bowled over to discover that the compact exhibition included china, shoes, clothes ceramics, and lace as well.
First of all, a bit of background; Eley Kishimoto is a partnership of Wakako Kishimoto from Sapporo and Mark Eley from Cardiff. They’ve been specializing in prints since they got together in the early 1990’s and started their own womenswear line. Nowadays they also offer an eclectic range of collaborations which are showcased in this exhibition.
The exhibition is on until 27th October so you’ve got plenty of time to drop in and see it. It’s free and it’s on the third floor at the Aram Store so take a peek at the wonderful furniture by great 20th century designers like Eileen Grey on the way up.
