The Dock returned as a design destination once again during LDF, though it did not offer the magnitude or variety of exhibitions compared to last year’s show.

The focus instead was on small scale production and the connection between the designer and the consumer.

This was best exemplified by Simon Hasan, who set-up a temporary workshop for the duration of the festival. Hasan was on-site crafting some of his boiled leather vessels and selling them from a nearby vending machine.

The project, called Mass Made, aimed to create, “a direct link between design, manufacture and retail.” By creating two standardized products, a short and tall vase, Hasan offered people the opportunity to buy a hand crafted item, but at a lower cost.
