115 Clerkenwell Rd, London EC1R 5BY
Its home on Clerkenwell Road is just a few doors away from the pop-up’s original location – Coppens was keen to stay in the area due to its burgeoning local design scene.
The shop specialises in original mid-century furniture and lighting, whilst also providing a platform for exhibitions and collaborations with contemporary and emerging artists. The first collaboration is with print designer Tamasyn Gambell.
As an avid collector of Scandinavian and Northern European design, Coppens has travelled extensively in the last couple of years acquiring pieces by Nordic design legends such as Jacobsen, Hvidt and Vodder.
She has also discovered lesser-known but just as inspiring artists, and hopes she can help young talents claim their space among the big names.
The new shop has undergone a complete revamp (it was previously a jewellers), to create a clean, minimalist backdrop – giving the furniture space to breathe.
The official launch is on 25th April 2012, after which the shop will be open Monday to Friday 11am – 7pm and two Saturdays a month – check the website to see which two.
