Metropolitan Works hosts successful fourth show

London Met’s digital manufacturing centre, Metropolitan Works, hosted its fourth annual Metropolitan Works Show from 10 to 24 May, showcasing contemporary furniture, lighting, home accessories and jewellery from some of the most exciting creative talents in the UK.

Offering 31 of its members the opportunity to launch prototypes of their products to the public, this year’s multidisciplinary Metropolitan Works Show encompassed a broad range of disciplines and materials - from Louise Gibb’s organically shaped ceramics to highly experimental wax vases by Spinifex and mixed media jewellery by Katrin Jaeger.

New to the annual event was the announcement of the first Metropolitan Works Best In Show Award. The £500 Metropolitan Works Creative Industry Centre voucher award was presented to designer Francisca Prieto for her anti-clockwise wall clock (pictured left).

The judges were Guy Beggs, Director of Metropolitan Works; Matthew Lewis, Business Development - Metropolitan Works; and Justin McGuirk, the editor of Icon Magazine, who also presented the award to Francisca.

Metropolitan Works, incorporating Furniture Works, attracts a multitude of designers working in a variety of disciplines including furniture and product design, textiles, ceramics, glass and jewellery.

Located in London's City Fringe and East End, an area with the largest concentration of artists and designers in Europe, Metropolitan Works is the capital’s first one-stop digital manufacturing centre that encourages creative people to extend the applications of formerly inaccessible industrial level technologies.
