out and about :: collect

Katie | February 6, 2017

Last week, Design Geek was invited to London’s Saatchi Gallery for the preview of Collect, the ‘international art fair for contemporary objects’ from the Crafts Council. It’s not our usual stomping ground, but ever keen to get out of our comfort zone, we went along to check it out. It raised interesting, and sometimes uncomfortable, questions about the boundaries between art, craft and design, so we thought we’d share some of the objects that captured our attention here… Enjoy!
