Post image for STILL EXPLORING LONDON

So SCP is one of those companies that really does not do them justice in that they are not just the shop, they manufacture and also do complete interior redesigns for clients. But what caught my eye, well just inside the door was some grow bags from Bacsac. I love a garden and think everyone […]

Post image for BENJAMIN MALES

Benjamin is classed as a course wide contributor to the RCA which involves running workshops and giving tutorial support amongst many other things I assume. He is also a designer in his own right and the piece I like is his take on the chandelier the Perspective Chandelier V2, as you can see in the […]
