SOUTH EAST MAKERS CLUB x GILES MILLER STUDIO x ALDWORTH JAMES & BOND
Fri — Sun
South East Makers Club presents Byplace, an immersive installation by Deptford-based design company Giles Miller Studio and fabricators Aldworth James & Bond. Celebrating the marriage between design and making the large-scale sculptural structure plays on density and perspective, drawing on Giles Miller Studio’s award-winning aesthetic. The installation will be located on the Grade 2 listed Carriage Ramp in Deptford Market Yard, a market space filled with local, independent businesses and creative spaces.
The project is supported by Deptford Market Yard, structural engineering specialists Shockledge and material sponsors DHH Timber.
“One of the joys of South East Makers Club is meeting the talented designers, makers and businesses that are based here. There is a genuine shared desire to work together, to collaborate and help one another to realise bold ideas, and perhaps uniquely, to have fun doing it! Bringing together two local practices, Giles Miller Studio and Aldworth James & Bond, with a shared desired to build and craft with skill and precision, has been a joy. Both companies have been totally enthusiastic about showcasing their work in Deptford. We couldn’t have done it without the backing and support from Deptford Market Yard, who have believed in the project from the outset. Nor could we have done it without Shockledge who are lending their expertise and DHH Timber for the material supply. This is a fine example of collaboration at it's best.”
