The Temporium is a new pop-up store that makes use of empty shop spaces, providing online retailers and small independent brands with a temporary high street presence. The first one is just in time for Christmas…
THE TEMPORIUM, 9th-19th December 2010
221 Brompton Road, London SW3 2EJ (07887 502 457)
Conceived as a temporary emporium (get it?!), expect to find watches, glassware, ceramics, lighting, furniture, books, jewellery and home wares from a variety of design-led brands.
Located in the prestigious shopping district between Knightsbridge and South Kensington (Brompton to be precise), this store undoubtedly provides an alternative and more down-to-earth shopping experience to the predictable offerings of many of its neighbours.
Oh yes, and signed copies of LONDON DESIGN GUIDE are also being sold there.
The Temporium is likely to pop-up again in different locations throughout the year. It is organised as a collaboration between Alice Breed, Marcus Fairs and Deborah Spencer.
