As part of the London Design Festival, the Museum is proud to present its first ever pop-up shop.  Situated in the Breakfast Parlour of Number 12 Lincoln’s Inn Field, five designers will be showcasing their work in one of London’s top design destinations, all week from Tuesday 17th to Saturday 21st September, 10 am to 5pm.

Soane intended that his Museum should serve to highlight the union of the arts – in his own words to highlight the ‘close connexion between Painting, Sculpture and Architecture - Music and Poetry’.  His collections were arranged ‘as studies for my own mind, and being intended similarly to benefit the Artists of future generations’. The Museum is delighted to welcome five innovative designers who seek to continue this tradition!

The designers whose works will be available at the event are:

Pastiche of a bust - a lady upper torso and head, mounted on a base, wears headphones in the form of seashells
