Following the debut success of The Temporium last year, the temporary Christmas emporium returns to London this Christmas. Purchase design items by a variety of new and established designers and brands in this Covent Garden pop-up shop, presented by Dezeen.
THE TEMPORIUM, 1st-24th December 2011
65 Monmouth Street, London WC2H 9DG
Over 20 different stalls are selling unique gifts and products direct to the public. The theme this year is “24 days of Christmas” and each day a different product is being featured in the store, creating an advent calendar of designer gifts.
Highlights include a selection of glassware and porcelain curated by Spanish designer Jaime Hayon (above); a special edition War Bowl by Dominic Wilcox (below); and a limited edition Christmas product by Paul Cocksedge.
The Christmas tree is decorated with special red and white cycle lights by Swedish designers Bookman while delicious festive take-away snacks are provided by Pom Pom Takoyaki. A festive window display created by Frama is featuring dozens of Diamond Lights designed by Eric Therner (below).
Other designers involved include cult jewellery designers Fiona Paxton, Paperself (whose eccentric paper eyelashes were one of the biggest hits last year), a new UK-based lighting and furniture brand working with Australian designers called Matilda and leading design retailer Theo (below) alongside many, many more.
And don’t forget, LONDON DESIGN GUIDE 2012-2013 EDITION is selling at The Temporium alongside DEZEEN BOOK OF IDEAS. Each book can be purchased for £12 or both together for £20! If you can’t make it to the shop, you can order both books directly from us for delivery anywhere in the world.
