The Art of Movement

The Art of Movement documents what happens when we use our head and heart to move our hands. Through the use of video we hope to give you more of a multi-sensory insight into our creative journey, discovery and play at the intersection of different disciplines. 

20th April 2017: "Waste is a mis-conception". Here are the initial stages of making a mould suitable to hold the bio-resin for a piece of furniture that will be made out of what would be perceived as 'waste.'

2nd April 2017: A work in progress re-imagining school to be a desirable, inspirational and adaptable place to be. Can it be stylish and sustainable? Can it help cultivate emotional intelligence? Can we prepare people for the opportunities and challenges for the world ahead by their environment and designing interactions between educators and their students?

26th March 2017: This is a video summarising the week of the 20th of March 2017. It is the beginnings of a concept development for re-imagining the school environment. It is an emptying of the mind and a play of what could be. 

18th March 2017: This video is about Beyond the Obvious scarf. The Internet has created an environment of extensive connectivity and creativity. It has also elevated the value of attention as a traded currency. Due to this we have seen the rise of the 140 character tweet and media outlets writing online content designed for easy consumption, engagement and clicks. 

This inspired us to create a scarf that celebrates looking beyond what is most visible to us, taking the time to appreciate the nuances of a story, subject or even one's life in order to open us up to new perspectives and fascinating insights that would otherwise have gone unnoticed.  

This piece embodies looking beyond the obvious — the image was captured on black and white film by photographer Adam Lee and developed by his own hands — an image of the interaction between a simple sculpture and light become the basis of a complex pattern of undulating curves and the play of bright and subtle illumination. We see that the brightest areas are interconnected to different levels of light. The whole print reveals more of itself the longer you study it, showing that a single glance of what is obvious, is insufficient to appreciate its complexity and true beauty.  

March 11th 2017: Laboratory of London is a Social Luxury House of Imagination. We create and play at the intersection of different disciplines, working with creatives and scientists on our projects. This video provides and insight into our textile production process in England in partnership with a family run business who have put their heart and soul into the textile industry for over 70 years.
