The ‘Deco Spiral’ rug, by Tim Gosling for The Rug Company MONDAY I am fortunate enough to live in a beautiful, old house in Clapham Old Town with the Gosling studios just across the road. It is the perfect two-second commute! My house is not only my home but also the Gosling showroom. It showcases the work we do beautifully, and my collections of statues, books and ephemera are a constant

Tim Gosling

08 : in.HIS LIFE resource for the team and myself. The house is immaculate – I am very fastidious about how it is presented. I start each week with a production meeting with the Gosling team. This critical meeting sets the rhythm and schedule for how we manage the rest of the week. I am often out of the studio and it is imperative the team knows what each other are doing. We handle a huge variety of projects, from individual bespoke pieces to huge double height libraries in Connecticut. We work in hotels, office headquarters, super-yachts and residences across the globe. We talk about the designs and technical drawings, the materials and their applications but also about the dinners and events I am attending throughout the week. It helps to share all this information as many of my evenings are spent with clients or at design-related events. The studio is buzzing and vibrant and I would not have it any other way. We all eat lunch together. It is a great way to hear what is going on in everyone’s lives. On Monday evening I usually schedule most of my charity/trustee meetings, either for Omnibus, the NSPCC or the Maggie’s Centre Pantomime 2017. TUESDAY Tuesday always starts with an hour’s piano tutorial, which is a different mindset. Music is an incredibly important part of my life. I adore my old wind up gramophone and still listen to old 78s, I have a huge collection and some very rare pieces. The sound is so special, nothing can compete.

10 : in.HIS LIFE I spend the early part of the week doing creative work. I have been sketching since I was very young and still hand sketch all my designs and paint the watercolours, which are transposed onto vellum. I have just completed sketching the detailing on a Grand Tour fireplace collection, which will be launched in the autumn by Chesney’s. I am also currently working on a mural in my Egyptian Room in Sycamore House. I would love to have more time to spend on it; I will finish it… one day. WEDNESDAY I go to the opera, ballet or theatre at least once or twice a week. It is a great privilege to live in London and be able to engage in the most amazing art world. I am also incredibly fortunate that many Gosling clients sponsor events at the Royal Opera House and I have many friends from my theatre design days, who are now putting on their own productions. Many gallery private viewings are early in the morning. It is a wonderful way to start the day and have the honour of seeing stunning collections with out the crowds. Exhibitions are inspirational and educational in equal measures and I think this influence is evident in my work. THURSDAY I do try to do a little physical exercise, mainly because the gym is embarrassingly close to the studio. I want to try and make sure I can still fit in my suits and shorts without looking like Jabba the Hut in Star Wars! Much of my work is informed and inspired by museum collections. I am passionate about the Sir John Soane’s Museum, of which I am part of the Patron’s circle. I visit exhibitions regularly but also attend the

Tim’s Plaster room painted in the traditional Soane yellow lecture series put on by the British Museum, Royal Academy and V&A. I am currently working with the V&A and Sir Frederick Parker Collection curating an exhibition at Syon Park for the entrance of Decorex 16. For the exhibition I have invited very big names in the design world to choose a chair, like Sir Paul Smith, Sir James Dyson and the astonishingly brilliant artist, Sir Michael Craig-Martin. It has been very exciting to see their choices and hear what the chair says to them.

FRIDAY I give about two to three lectures a month to a variety of institutions, including major museums and clients like Jaeger Le-Coultre and Cartier. The lectures run to coincide with books I have written. Friday tends to be book day. I try to spend the day researching for my next book, which is will be published by Thames & Hudson. An enormous amount of research goes in to each book but the end result makes the hard work so worthwhile. I hope my books will serve as good reference books for designers and clients who wish

12 : in.HIS LIFE to stay true to a design period. SATURDAYS & SUNDAYS The Gosling client base is worldwide. I travel an exceptional amount and more recently have been spending a lot of time in the USA. I am either handling client installations, like a double height library in Connecticut, which involved flying six British craftsmen to America for five weeks, or promoting my latest book, Classic Contemporary: The DNA of Furniture Design, or launching my latest collection of rugs for The Rug Company. If I am free to spend the weekend at home I will start the day by walking my beloved spaniel, Haichi. I then catch up with friends, take my 1934 Rolls Royce, Betty, for a spin or continue building the train set I started when I was eight. I am passionate about trains and will go out of my way to find pieces of the set on eBay.

Tim’s home doubles as the Gosling showroom

I schedule in some piano practise or work on the production of the pantomime. The pantomime is a huge production, which involves all the great and the good from the world of interior design. It is great fun but more importantly a huge charitable fundraiser. I am a fanatical collector of antiquarian books and it is not unusual for me to be chasing around the country sourcing rare books to add to my already huge library. I normally fall into bed every night exhausted but reminded of a comment by my great friend and client, Lord Browne, who said, “The day starts with the prepared mindset of the night before.”

Its 12,500m2 will showcase 250 independent designers and brands, 200 global brands, and 15 country pavilions in ever-more creative formats. This will be clear to see in one of Tent London 2016’s most exciting new installations. “We were invited to propose a project by the trade commission of the Trentino region of Italy,” explained Jimmy MacDonald, London Design Fair founder and director. “The result is Trentino Collaborations, which connects four British designers with four Trentino-based manufacturers to create new products for retail.” Max Lamb is producing granite furniture with a quarry company, Sebastian Cox is working with hard wood rather than green wood for the first time, using a weaving technique from Trentino, Lucy Kurrein is designing leather upholstery, and Giles Miller will take his first foray into natural stone tiles. The four collections will be shown in specially commissioned wooden structures, inspired by largescale, natural sculptures shown at Arte Sella, Trentino’s open-air art exhibition that is marking its 20th anniversary in 2016.

Get Immersed In designjunction Critically acclaimed international design show designjunction has relocated to an exciting new long-term home in King’s Cross, one of most exciting urban redevelopments in the UK.



ith the support of the King’s Cross development partnership, designjunction will take over the area for its flagship show during 22nd to 25th September 2016. The 67-acre King’s Cross site has a rich history and a unique appeal. This former industrial heartland is being transformed into one of the capital’s most exciting destinations, with the redevelopment of the

area creating 1,900 new homes, 20 new streets, 10 new public parks and squares and 3 million square feet of commercial office space as well as cultural attractions. The theme of the 2016 designjunction show will be ‘Immersed in Design’, with the move to the larger King’s Cross site marking the next chapter for designjunction and the creation of the King’s Cross Design District at this year’s London Design Festival.

designjunction has announced plans to create a super façade structure at its London show in King’s Cross this September (22–25) – designed by leading architectural firm Satellite Architects, alongside Danish design curators, Icons of Denmark. The teams will be using the modular and versatile GRID system by Danish designer Peter J. Lassen. The London-based practice, which has worked across cultural, residential, and commercial projects for high-profile clients

in.SHOW : 27 including the River Cottage, has designed a spectacular 70m long by 7m high façade entrance to Cubitt House, the trade destination at designjunction during this year’s London Design Festival. The façade will be the world’s largest installation of GRID made possible by structural engineers Elliott Wood. designjunction 2016 will host four distinct exhibition sites against the industrial backdrop of King’s Cross. The centrally located Granary Square will feature eight Monopoly-style houses for headline sponsored projects and installations. Cubitt House, a two-floor pavilion in Lewis Cubitt Square, will have a strong trade focus, featuring the best in contemporary lighting in the ‘lightjunction’ as well as furniture from international design brands. Key brands include Haberdashery, Lindholt, Northern Lighting, String, Kirkby Design, Modus and Rubn. The Canopy will be a temporary pop-up venue for premium retail brands, including everything from fashion accessories to technology, textiles and stationery. Located between Central Saint Martins, UAL and Waitrose, the large market area will take shape under a heritage protected wrought iron structure and will attract retail buyers and design-savvy consumers. The Crossing, running through the centre of Central Saint Martins, UAL, will house immersive installations including a striking reception area and exhibition space created from Dinesen flooring.

Front Of House To create a striking impression for its national and international visitors, global design event designjunction commissioned London-based Satellite Architects to create a 70m long by 7m high super façade entrance to its trade destination in King’s Cross for the London Design Festival. Stewart Dodd, founder of Satellite Architects, explains how it came to life.


ow do you hide a two storey, aesthetically challenged tent in the middle of King’s Cross? This was the problem Deborah Spencer, founder of designjunction, set Satellite Architects when she invited the practice to look at Cubitt House, designjuction’s trade exhibition which will hold more than 100 leading international furniture and lighting brands during the festival. This two-storey temporary structure, spanning over 2,500m2 on Lewis Cubitt Square, will sit on the border of the latest phase of construction with the King’s Cross redevelopment. “When we met, Deborah talked about the idea that Frieze London has adopted for the last few years of getting an architect in to

in.BRIEF : 31

design its pavilion. We came up with this grid structure for the front of the building that could be used to display products from the show itself,” explained Stewart.


Satellite’s design has also taken into account the idiosyncrasies of the site. The façade’s scale reflects the old railway shed adjacent to it, while the architect also had to deal with the line of trees sitting between the tent and the edge of the pavement. Stewart elected to pull the façade out to the street, effectively sandwiching the trees in between it and the pavilion. Meanwhile the grid system means that the tent is effectively cloaked behind a wall of pixels but visitors are still aware of the ‘secret garden’ that now lies behind the facade. “You walk through this skin, this grid, and you end up seeing that it has trees behind it,” said Stewart. Initially, the architect was going to specify

a scaffold system that’s often used in conventional exhibitions but then Spencer introduced him to GRID by Danish designer Peter J. Lassen – brought to the UK by Danish

design curators, Icons of Denmark. Used more regularly indoors, the system is based on a 40 x 40 x 40cm basic module made from nylon reinforced with fibreglass.

32 : in.BRIEF

Satellite’s façade will use over 4,000 of these lightweight, versatile pieces, changing colour from black at the base to white at the top. The GRID system will hold an array of acrylic panels supplied by Dutch company PyraSied, orientated to reflect or provide glimpses of the foliage beyond. The architects are using GRID as it allows them to build with maximum freedom and simplicity. It can be assembled in various ways in height, width and length, and the cubic frame is produced with mounting holes making the system versatile. “The facade is intended to reflect the temporary nature of designjunction as an exhibition and the developing surroundings, combining natural and artificial elements,” concluded Stewart. Providing visitors with a stunning entrance to the exhibition, the façade will be the

world’s largest installation of GRID, thanks to structural engineers Elliott Wood. Satellite’s façade will be suspended over a scaffold framework, constructed by awardwinning London design and build firm Oktra. Expected to be built in just three days, the fully counter-levered scaffold design features over 463 linear metres of poles to support the bespoke grid super-structure. This impressive system will be constructed flat, then lifted into position and tied back into the Cubitt House pavilion to leave a seamless flat elevation.

Visitors to Cubitt House at designjunction will be fully immersed in design as they enter the building under a stepped down gridded canopy between mirrored panels. Having passed though the exhibition, visitors can also enjoy a secret garden space which features a popup café furnished with Deadgood’s new Naked collection, as well as outdoor lighting and plants supplied by Artemide and Bloomon.
