To celebrate the opening of the Soane's Regency-era kitchens, four leading UK designers exhibit their work in these previously unseen spaces. Below Stairs, part of London Design Festival 2016, sees Edward Barber & Jay Osgerby, Jasper Morrison, Martino Gamper and Paul Cocksedge display new and bespoke work which together informs how we design for our lives today.
Alongside these pieces are a set of newly created ‘scent chambers’ from Tasha Marks, Founder of AVM Curiosities, which provide an interactive element to the exhibition. Visitors can open the chambers to discover evocative aromas which recreate the atmosphere of a working Georgian kitchen.
