You couldn’t miss the Design55 installation. Outside the Upper Queen street boutique a panda was giving out Designday bags. I’m not sure if there could have been another person more pleased when the day started clouding over than WORLD design Francis Hooper who was bundled up inside the Panda suit. The Panda also had his forest with a bamboo screen leading you into the showroom where visitors were treated to an exhibition of their most beautiful art/design objects including new works by Reuben Paterson.

But wait there was more! Down below Timothy John had created a dark and beautiful installation of his new work. Launching at Designday, this collection could have been plucked straight from the Milan Furniture Fair with a soft woven tactility combined with strong oversized shapes.
