“Individually, approaches vary but collectively the work engages contemporary contradictions within design – The relationships between digital and analogue, for example, in a changing age of technology. Or the relationships between local production and global distribution.” says the group.

“The work itself is split into two distinct camps – one which deals with engaging opposing values from aesthetic and cultural perspectives and one which look at the strange relationship between craft, manufacture and scale.”
Big Small Show / RCA Design Products events begin September 15th to 19th at the Hoxton Basement Gallery, 12 – 16 Hoxton Street, London (opposite the Red Lion Pub). Open from 10am – 10pm each day.
