'ExCinere' is a refined collection of volcanic ash-glazed tiles, a new take on the tradition of volcanic lava as building material and a manifest of the enduring attraction between humans and the impossible force of nature.
About the Hosts
Brompton Design District
Initiated by South Kensington Estates, a company with a history woven into the fabric of the district for over 200 years, Brompton Design District was established in 2007 to foster a space where new design can flourish. The aim was to revitalise the heritage of the area as a place where people come together to share, enjoy and learn about design in its broadest sense; design, culture, fashion and food.
It is the leading District during the annual London Design Festival with a dedicated programme of temporary exhibitions. Brompton’s programme, curated by Jane Withers Studio, has combined pioneering and innovative contemporary exhibitions, set in an area of London known for its iconic, international design brands.
For the 2022 programme, exhibitions as part of Brompton Design District will highlight contemporary design under the theme ‘Make Yourself at Home’. Designers have been invited to reflect on the many meanings of the places we call home and the role of design in transforming these spaces.
