Mini Moderns at Tent London

Photography by Will Taylor
I’ve loved the work of Mini Moderns since I discovered their work in an interview they did with Grand Designs magazine way back when I was still at university. We’ve kept in touch after meeting at the Tent design show a few years later and you might recognise some of their pieces in this post from previous features on the blog. Anyhow, this past weekend, the 2011 Tent London show took place and I went along to view the latest works of some excellent designers. It was such a pleasure to spend a few hours with Keith, Mark – the Mini Mods head honchos! – and their new assistant, Charlotte as I photographed the stand. OK, so I did take time out to read their newspaper – I couldn’t resist! I love watching their brand grow and feel genuine excitement each time I hear of their new collections. My favourites? It has to be the seaside-inspired charm of Whitby and the nostalgia-inducing Memorabilia. Which of their designs do you like best?

The designs are amazing, so fresh and playful! I want to frame their wrapping paper. It is way too pretty to actually wrap presents in.

Greetings from Paris!

yes! an oasis of cheer in a slightly lack lustre Tent this year (my opinion only -there were a few gems to be found!)
