from the 30th of September to the 3rd of October 2009

"Urban Upholstery bold and contemporary design gives new life to discarded furniture that has been rescued from the streets." Engaging with the underground space of the railway arches at London Bridge, they evoke an urban path where waste has been uplifted to the state of unique objects.
Emphasised with punctual lights and parallel lines, the gallery-corridor that starts from Joiner Street presents a scenario of scattered frames and suspended furniture.

Visual and Audio Installations
by Din-collective and Crunch Art are taking place in the same time.

Space + Time Exhibition ( 19 -20 September 2009)

Design is about space and time, the space we inhabit and the objects we choose to fill it with. Renewable resources are paramount to the sustainability of our environment.
The exhibition is in collaboration with Hoxton Halls Architecture Open House event, which happens every year and attracts up to 2000 visitors over the weekend.


Andrea and Patrizia, founder of Urban Upholstery, says: “We seek to create a more responsible, interesting and aesthetically pleasing environment. We see upholstery as an art that allows us to interpret the potentials in every day life and we wanted to create a new line of furniture that improves people lives and their relationship with the environment. We have always recycled furniture because we are passionate about old features and objects, reading their history and transforming them. As designers we approach furniture like miniature architectures, able to create space and to identify with the person hat owns them.”
