WRK / LDN: Shaping London’s future workspaces

Thursday 13 October – Saturday 21 January 2017

As the speed of technological change accelerates, the boundaries between working, living and leisure become ever more blurred, with the workplace in a time of deep flux culturally and internationally. What do we need for the future? Where will we working?

Highlighting key issues from permitted development rights to the declining quantity of industrial land, this exhibition highlights future growth areas across the capital, showcases current exemplar schemes and gives key recommendations for how we should secure the future of London’s economy.

Providing a pop-up working space, the exhibition will also host a series of resident makers illustrating the diversity of fabrication in London, including:

24 October - 5 November: Juan Junca + Building BloQs
Designer and maker of bespoke furniture, inspired by mid-century and Arts and Crafts

7-26 November: Lana Alana
Hand-lettering artist and calligrapher creating murals, signs and displays

28 November – 17 December: Raw Studio
Designer and producer of unique furniture, lighting and accessories

A series of objects ‘Made in London’ complete the display, showcasing London’s makers and manufacturers and industry, accompanied by a photographic series by Grant Smith. Featured products include: Brompton bikes, Dalston Cola, Flatfoot Johnny handmade instruments, Freed of London ballet shoes, Kaymet trays, The London Cloth Company, Mason Pearson brushes, Opendesk furniture, Technology will Save Us toys, 4160Tuesdays perfume, and Baj’s Blazin’ Hot Sauce.

The exhibition is part of an NLA insight study programme, supported by a three-month series of events.
