CONTAINS take two

It’s up and running again and looking good. Still very cold, but thankfully the local pan-pipers have been entertaining us. Every day.

CONTAINS has vanished

It was like something out of Groundhog Day when Andrew and I arrived to open up the containers this morning. They’d disappeared! At first I thought it was the cold, or perhaps the lack of sleep that had finally driven me mad. Sadly, my mental state was sound – All 8 shipping containers had been picked up by the container company a week early with the entire exhibition rattling around inside. Now there’s an opportunity for a lawsuit if ever there was one! Apparently there’s not much damage. Set up all over again tomorrow… I think I need a hug.

So far so freezing

Spreading the eco buzz to Georgies daylong might sound like fun, but it’s bloomin’ freezing! Why didn’t we do this in the summer?!

CONTAINS has landed

After a grueling installation the exhibition is up. Phew!

CONTAINS – DEO7

CONTAINS is the latest [re]design exhibition, due to land in Newcastle this week (literally). CONTAINS is a public facing show designed to challenge consumers buying choices: “What goes into the things we invite into our homes?” Where better to talk about shopping habits than on the high street? Grainger Street to be precise! Housed in 8 shipping containers packed with sustainable UK design CONTAINS is sure to turn a few heads.
