studio xag: hands on

‘hands on’ exhibit sketchlondon based studio zag teamed up with the university of arts london to create, hands on an exhibition of works presented as a fantastical shoebox house as part of london design week 2010. the gallery space is a life size scale model, with materials designed to mimic smalls scale elements like the matchbox and matchstick dining table. these oversize elements serve as the backdrop to an exhibition of various design and craft works based on a tea party setting.  among the works on show are hektor mamet’s ‘leaning chair’, david clarke’s unusual silverware and robert dawson’s subversive china series. university of the arts london graduates created all the designs in the exhibit.
