#ArchitectureFriday Takeover

DesMus Takeover
05-02-2021

This month we are taking over the Design Museum account to take part in #ArchitectureFriday. As a studio we are interested in the role of architecture at every resolution, macro to micro; from city to street to building and the threshold spaces between them. Through our work we explore the changing relationships between the fabric of the city and the human rituals, habits and behaviours that define our built environment.⁠

Follow the campaign on both the Design Museum and Pearson Lloyd accounts.

In the lead up to opening up our new studio, Yorkton Workshops we worked closely with SCP to design a bespoke, new version of the Peggy workbench. This design has two different rectangular shaped tops that are configured in a t-shape. The idea is the table should be a totally flexible workspace, as suitable for a large group meeting as it is for an individual to quietly work away on a laptop, or on a technical drawing.

Yorkton Workshops: Making Design
11-09-2020

From trimmers, turners, gilders and framers, the borough of Hackney has a rich connection to the crafts and industry of the timber trade. For two hundred years, in workshops across the borough; furniture, musical instruments and architectural joinery has been crafted for customers far and wide. Design studio Pearson Lloyd, who have worked in the area for 23 years, is completing the repurposing of a series of Hackney workshops that once housed the makers of hats, tools, dolls and chairs into their new studio, workshop, archive and gallery. In celebration, Yorkton Workshops is being opened to visitors, where a temporary exhibition of Pearson Lloyd’s archive and design process will sit alongside a glimpse into the history of the building itself and its inhabitants. Making Design forms part of Open House, London Design Festival and Shoreditch Design Triangle and is open from 10 am – 5 pm on September 18th, 19th, 20th 2020.
