For the 2013 London Design Festival, Mini Moderns are curating a 2-week event, hosted by East London Design Store in their newly launched shop in London Fields, E8. The Remix project sees cult UK interiors brand Mini Moderns team up with a select number of designers and artists, using its past collections as a basis for new work. The store will be filled with a diverse range of curated objects, furniture, lighting and ephemera that gives an insight into the Mini Moderns aesthetic and design process.
The 2013 Remix project is based largely upon Mini Moderns' Darjeeling wallpaper design, which was launched this year as part of their Buddha of Suburbia collection. Fittingly, since the collection celebrates a uniquely London cultural mash-up, Mini Moderns have given Remix collaborators free reign to reimagine the design on a piece of their choice. The project includes work by Zoe Murphy, Leonhard Pfeifer, Rimmington Vian, Urban Upholstery and Brume, as well as the launch of Mini Moderns' first lighting collection, produced and designed in collaboration with Group Design. Further work comes from artist Matt Sewell and furniture maker Benjamin Boyce, who have both used the range of Mini Moderns Environmentally Responsible Paint as the basis for their response.
Mini Moderns Remix at East London Design Store - 14th to 22nd September 2013, open Daily 10am till 6pm. 6a Ada Street, London Fields, London E8 4QU.
