From a series of investigations and spatial analysis of both the practice and the philosophy of The Wire magazine company, the students have designed pieces of furniture relating to specific needs or requirements within their office environment. It was proposed that the pieces imagined The Wire relocated to a co-working space in Stoke Newington Town Hall, a Grade II listed art deco building. The students have explored the architecture, decoration and materials of the space and how they can mediate between the building and the identities and environment of The Wire.
This piece of furniture can then develop further through a transition stage to meet the needs of a civic and community space.
The project has been titled Pathologically Independent, reflecting the identity of The Wire.
The project was previewed at our Clerkenwell showroom; with judging from Christopher Crawford of Gensler and Pranvera Vula of TP Bennett
