Curate ‘handled with care’ an exhibition of over 200 contemporary ceramic wares from established and
upcoming international designers. Since their origin ceramic works have expanded the functional dimension and
contemporary production engenders ornamentation, sculpture and installation. The exhibition will feature a selection
of ceramic objects, which express subjects and details of everyday life, their departure from tradition and the
current conflict of ecology and consumerism.
The multi-functioning, ever evolving media company will stage their hugely successful Secret Wars during the
show. Their eclectic-cross section of artists balances renowned household names with the hottest prospects on
the design circuit. Secret Wars is a battle like no other. Similar to Fight Club it thrives on word of mouth. Put
simply, it is a war between artists. The ultimate question however, is who will reign supreme? The only weapon
they carry is the pen they hold in their hand.
The multi award winning creative agency and long term sponsors of Designersblock will take part, When they
participated in 2003 it was to launch the award winnining inteactive digital installation ‘Room 10101’. At
Designersblock in 2004 they produced the ‘Poke Lab’ to unleash the groundbreaking ‘Hulger’ concept to

Exhibition and exclusive preview of a new book, Manufacturing Processes for Design Professionals by Rob
Thompson, published on 15th October 2007 by Thames & Hudson. The author has traveled to some of the
most innovative factories in the world in search of exciting manufacturing case studies. This exhibition pays
homage to the wealth of manufacturing heritage and expertise that the UK has to offer. Mode of Production will
showcase installations that demonstrate materials and manufacturing processes for designers, architects and
engineers. Manufacturing in plastic, glass, ceramic, wood and metal will be included. Mode of Production is an
opportunity to see how products are made, discover innovative materials and meet the manufacturers behind
the processes. The book, Manufacturing Processes for Design Professionals, can be previewed during the
exhibition on Thursday 20 September.
Have been designed specifically for Designersblock by Mathew Plummer-Fernandez, to address the issues of
designing in London.Rather than resorting to the unsustainable luxury of solutions to production across the
globe, the product is limited to material sources and manufacturing within London. The final product is therefore
quintessentially London as the city is known for its abundance of discarded newspapers from which the
structures are made from. The material alone is labelled with references to the social context of when and where
it was made, which will age to document that moment historically. The material also has a nostalgic element to it
that takes everyone back to the simple joy of making things with papier mache, a starting point for most
Designersblock with Matthew Durran, James Carcasse & Jon Lewis.
Liquid projects originated from a frustration with being unable to constructively dispose of the empty bottles after
of our parties and events so we thought we would get a kiln made, melt down the glass and invite everyone we
have worked with over ten years to make objects live at Designersblock.
