An online design favorite opens a temporary holiday emporium
Gathering some of the U.K.'s most remarkable designers under one roof, London's newest pop up concept caters to the shopper with a sharp stylish eye. Temporium—aptly located in the Brompton Design District—is the upshot of a collaboration between Dezeen, its spin-off hit the Dezeen Watch Store and design pundits Deborah Spencer and Alice Breed.
The temporary shopping environment is the perfect place for Dezeen to flex its design muscle, bringing part of their online archive to life (much like our own little pop up). As Breed explains, the stopgap store allowed the team "to create something which minimizes financial risk for all concerned," while maximizing on a purposefully-sourced collection of covetable goods.
Standouts include Lee Broom and his new pendant lights and Foundry Lighting's Tracey Neuls and Thorsten Van Elten, whose eye for a good piece of affordable design knows no bounds.To make sure the space is tied together with a strong narrative, the Post Office will be giving the space more than just a lick of paint.
Open 9-19 December 2010, whether its a watch for Gramps, a new coffee mug for the office or a few new lights for your kitchen, Temporium has it covered.
