during london design week 09, designer giles miller designed and curated a pop-up shop of his work at 1.12 kingly court. miller has designed a range of cardboard products and furniture in which he attempts to combine the values of individuality with the realities of reproduction in his somewhat craft-based production techniques. the way in which he proceeds with his design allows for personalization, giving individuals the opportunity to add value to their object, preventing them from losing their worth.
