Upcircle Studio presents an immersive pavilion where the visitors will discover products from local artists, artisans and designers. The space will be decorated and curated with products that follow sustainable values, promoting up-cycling and recycling design.
The elements used to build the installation are commonly used and reused on building sites. The structure will be dis-mountable and reusable at the end of the festival – a further comment of the impact of regeneration skilled makers.
The Pavilion will be a showcase of furniture, artwork and objects designed by creative designers and artists from Brixton community that follow the principles of sustainability:

Upcircle is a design studio based in London that offers design consultancy services on digital, graphic, furniture and interior design. Formed by three partners with the same passion for innovative, inspiring and sophisticated design. Upcircle takes care of projects from the beginning to completion with two main values: Sustainability and Design Excellence. They believe that a design project has the responsibility to respect the principles of social, economic and ecological sustainability and take special concern in the choice of suppliers, manufacturers, makers and partners. The studio takes its inspiration from the Slow Design Movement, Upcycling and Circular Economy. They prioritise the value of the maker’s hand and celebrate the idiosyncrasies of things imperfect and ageing, raised by their action to tailored, meaningful and innovative concepts.
