Timothy Everest and COLLAGELONDON join virtual window display for Shoreditch Design Triangle
Launched for the Shoreditch Design Triangle, an outpost of the London Design Festival, onRedchurch is hosting this safe, responsible and socially distanced event in order to support local talent and to re-energise the street post-COVID.
This September, Cabinets of Curiosities will adorn the shopfronts of Redchurch Street, represented through graphic representations, printed on window vinyls and affixed to retail units along the street.
Visitors can support our creative community by using QR codes to visit virtual storefronts.
Each cabinet showcases a local designer, maker, artist or craftsperson, with big names nestle alongside independents, demonstrating the diversity of our creative community.
QR codes on each space connect visitors to online versions of the cabinets, where they can learn more about each participant and discover Redchurch Street’s rich creative history.
William Waples, Asset Manager, Derwent London, said: “It’s good to see Cabinets of Curiosity come to life. Redchurch Street has been a hive of creative and industrial activity since the 17th century, home to artists, designers and makers, and this project shows that the creativity continues today. This virtual venture is a great marker for the future of Redchurch: sharing a dynamic and vibrant new landscape at a time of uncertainty.”
Theo Karpathios, Owner of Timothy Everest, added: “Thank you onRedchurch and CO’ X for putting this original project together at such breakneck speed. As visitors start to return to Redchurch, it’s great to see shopfronts brought alive with graphics that celebrate the rich mix of Redchurch’s commercial and creative life.”
Participants include Donna Wilson, Timothy Everest, COLLAGELONDON, Peju Obasa, The Divine Feminine Project, and Meta.
