Curated by Clare Farrow Studio, the talks panel will focus on the vitally important theme of health and wellbeing in small urban living-work spaces, from a designer and user point of view.
Featuring William Bracewell, Principal Dancer of the Royal Ballet, whose new film explores movement and wellbeing in small spaces; Tokyo architect Toshiki Hirano and his Rika-chan doll’s house; Proctor & Shaw; and Richard Beckett from the Bartlett who is doing a live probiotic workspace experiment.
Other participants in this inspiring event will be Tokyo adviser and architectural designer Toshiki Hirano from the Kuma Lab at The University of Tokyo, who has taken the Rika-chan dolls house as a playful but also very serious model for future small space design, investigating its light, compact and foldable thinking with a view to future micro transforming designs; architect Mike Shaw of Proctor & Shaw, whose award-winning Shoji Apartment plays with the idea of translucency, vertical stacking and an opening and closing cocoon that enhances the psychological and physical experience of a tiny home; and Richard Beckett, Associate Professor at The Bartlett School of Architecture, who has collaborated with an immunologist from UCL to conduct a live experiment entitled ‘Imagining a probiotic microbial workspace’, which visitors will also be able to interact with and experience for periods of time.
Health in tiny spaces is not just about the dimensions of rooms and flexibility of furniture, or about bringing green plants in for pleasure and detoxing the air. It is about recognising that over-sanitised spaces disrupt the balance of microbes in our living and work environments, especially since the pandemic, resulting in autoimmune diseases that are on the rise. Beckett’s groundbreaking exhibition and experiment that blends architecture with science and medicine, brings the forest floor and ‘forest bathing’ concept out of nature and into the smallest of spaces. The results of his experiment will be revealed at the close of the exhibition in January 2024.

As an interior designer, influencing clients to make more conscious choices doesn’t have to mean a compromise in style. Focusing on both aesthetic and function, subliminal changes can encourage positive lifestyle shifts. And, these inherent design selections are being made easier thanks to new innovation and technology from brands within the sector. In this conversation we discuss some of the solutions which are readily available and how small changes can add up to make a bigger difference.

Gaggenau, the luxury brand for professional-grade home appliances, is once again immersing itself in the London Festival of Architecture 2023.
As part of the month-long celebration of architecture, Gaggenau London is showcasing a specially commissioned installation, TIME by Raphaé Memon and Sikander Pervez. It will be on display in the showroom window until 30 June 2023.
TIME is a series of handmade clocks, stacked vertically, designed to encourage us to explore our complex relationship with time. It was created by architect and stage designer Raphaé Memon and Sikander Pervez, a visual artist working in sculpture and installation. The duo’s brief for the installation was to use materials produced as a by-product of Gaggenau’s manufacturing process. As a result, the clocks are cast in plaster to be as close to zero-waste as possible.
“We were inspired by Gaggenau’s focus on hand craftsmanship, heritage and sustainability,” says Sikander Pervez. “A commonality found throughout is time. For example, the time it takes to consider lifestyles around which the appliances are designed. Everything at Gaggenau is manufactured precisely to ensure a minimal amount of waste is produced, so the consumer shares the maximum amount of time with appliances that are built to last.”
Each clock relates to a global time zone, including cities with Gaggenau showrooms, places that are personal to the designers and those who work at Gaggenau London, as well as countries that are most vulnerable to climate change. “The clocks have been handmade and signed as an edition of 200, with the aim that their life will continue beyond the installation in people’s homes,” adds Raphaé Memon. “They will therefore extend their time as functional objects, in keeping with the global conversation surrounding sustainability.”
Edina Crnkic, Gaggenau Group Brand Marketing Manager, said: “We are excited to work with Raphaé and Sikander to showcase this intriguing and very beautiful work. It chimes perfectly with Gaggenau’s values in terms of craftsmanship and sustainability and I’m sure it will spark many conversations.”
Gaggenau London is situated at 40 Wigmore Street and visitors will be able to enjoy the TIME installation throughout London Festival of Architecture (1-30 June 2023).
Any visitor who would like to take a clock home should register their interest at the showroom. The clocks will then be given out on a first-come, first-served basis at 10am on 1 July 2023.
Gaggenau is a manufacturer of high-quality home appliances and is acknowledged as an innovation leader in design and technology “Made in Germany”. The company, with a history dating back to 1683, has revolutionised the domestic kitchen with its internationally acclaimed products.
