Last night was the opening party of The Dock, the design extravaganza curated by Tom Dixon. The newly developed Portobello Docks is a beautiful site right on the canal in London's West, existing of three buildings: The Wharf Building which is housing Tom Dixon's brand new shop. The Canal Building which hosts a number of exhibitors (amongst others Case Furniture, Thorsten van Elten and Andre Klauser's and Ed Carpenter's freshly launched company Very Good and Proper). In the White Building are the young creative gunslingers such as Dominic Wilcox, Luka Stepan, Valentin Vodev and many more.
Pictured above are Bethan Wood's furniture and accessories from her Super Fake Series as well as Luka Stepan's foldable bar stool.
Brit Leissler lives and acts between London and Berlin. After receiving a Master degree in product design from the Royal College of Art in London she started her own Shoot the Stylist! design studio. She also works as a design educator for various institutions and founded Punch'n'Cuddle Ltd., producing and distributing her own products.
When taking a break from the design world she writes, sings and composes quirky electronic pop or travels the planet. Brit loves all forms of eccentricity, joins up the dots and aims to get into interesting conversations with all kinds of weird and wonderful people. As a hardcore digital camera gunslinger she shoots everything that moves and grooves. She doesn't eat animals, is hot for cheese, loves the Kensington Squirrels, robotic dance moves and life enhancing ideas.
