Director and Designer,
“I love my studio, I’ve lived and worked here for over five years. The place is enormous with beautiful windows stretched across one whole side of the warehouse but most importantly I adore all the people in it. We sometimes do circuits when waiting for things to download.”

Prop and accessory maker.
Rosy is currently exhibiting ‘If I Should Die Tonight’ at DreamBags JaguarShoes and she has created some delightful Christmas cards for us in the spirit of the show called Fez and Moon and The Crown and the Cat.
“My studio is at the top of an old framers business on the hackney road. It’s a pretty weird place. When I’m not there i sort of miss the aggressive affection and cussing i get from the old Nigerian doormen daily. Plus, the the mass of wood veneer right in front of my face makes the day feel a bit ‘twin peaks’, which is always welcome in my life.”

“When not in my studio I can usually be found dashing to the theatre – I’m almost always late. I fill my studio with keepsakes from shows I’ve designed. There’s a jaunty selection of miniature people and furniture from models I’ve built of sets and lots of old prop bits. I find inspiration in objects and form so an eclectic collection of curiosities seem to gather around my workspace. I’m happiest when the sun streams in through the giant windows first thing in the morning.”

Co-founder and Creative Directors of Poke and Hulger / Plumen.
“The Boskke + Plumen installation has been on my mind for a while, so it was great we got an opportunity to install it at the Old Shoreditch Station. There are clear floral references in the bulb design so it made perfect sense to couple them with inverted plants and flowers. We had a few pleasant surprises as it came together, the main one being how the light really brought out the colours of leaves and flowers to great effect. I imagine the plants were happy to be getting all that light.”

Director, Time Based Arts Post Production.
“Time Based Arts is located in the Caretakers Cottage (part of the Shoreditch Town Hall). We created this place from an empty shell, so it feels like home. We wanted our work environment to be creative and reflective of our personalities and the work we do. My ‘Magic Mike’ robot was a gift from a client. Special effects are the magic part of the production process, so it says it all really!”
