Squire & Partners celebrate raw materials at The Department Store Studios
Squire & Partners has launched The Department Store Studios, a new local workspace next door to their award-winning offices in Brixton.
Mix is delighted to be media partner of this new two day showroom trail event: an opportunity for architects, designers, specifiers, dealers and end users to network in person and exchange views.
This two-day trail will take visitors on a journey through new product launches and innovative designs, including a range of stimulating and thought-provoking topical seminars organised by WOD – Women in Office Design. The aim is to bring together thought-leaders and experts from the industry to interact with visitors, sharing their research and knowledge through talks and workshops, as well as providing a combined opportunity for architects, designers, specifiers, dealers and end users to network in real time again.
Registrations are now OPEN for the Seminars and Workshops with limited availability. Topics include:

The participating showrooms have been busy preparing a range of workshops, talks and activities with a clear focus on all things connected to wellbeing and workplace design, from creating DIY hanging baskets to enjoying some cocktails whilst learning how to cook plant-based meals.
Clerkenwell Open is a new event, facilitated and managed by two well regarded organisations in the interiors and design industry – The BCFA (British Contract Furnishing Association) and WOD (Women in Office Design).
‘After what has been a challenging year for our sector, we felt it was essential to organise this event to provide a boost to support the Clerkenwell showrooms so that they quickly regain their vibrancy and vital role within the contract sector,’ comments Jeremy Stein, Managing Director of the BCFA
‘The A&D community has missed out on networking and learning in last year and with Clerkenwell Open, we will endeavour to bring designers, specifiers and workplace experts together, to socialise and share ideas and knowledge through our seminars and workshops,’ adds Harsha Kotak, Founder of WOD
Companies participating in the OPEN to date include:
