    Lifeissuite2_177_

    Life is Suite was inspired by a sofa discovered in the backstreets of Deptford, London. As a team, we imagined stories of its life so far and gave it a new lease of life. The upholstery has been designed in an interactive manner, lift cushions to explore its history and listen to sounds from within. A series of one-off pieces have been exhibited in The Royal Exchange, the Royal Festival hall, 100% Design, and has been published across the world, in print and blogs.

    We offer an initial consultancy to find out the exact requirements for the sofa you would like to re-upholster. We then interpret and transform all the collected information into graphic and typographic designs to reveal your sofa’s past memories and experiences.

    Groupshot_177_

    The Deptford Design Market Challenge, a collaboration between Raw Nerve, Creative Lewisham and the London Design Festival, brought together 27 designers; including Conran and Partners, Stuart Haygarth and Marti Guixte. Each was encouraged to select a second-hand item from the market to be re-worked in a unique, desirable and functional fashion; and to challenge preconceptions of usefulness and beauty. deptforddesignchallenge
