  • Thamesmead: a 21st century town(Originally published on the UMd.studio Journal, 2nd June 2016) The Brutalist backdrop to our UMd White Label campaign shoot may have caught your eye. Shot at Thamesmead, a 'Utopian dream' of a housing development built in the 1960s, we delve a little deeper into this iconic London landmark, exploring the grand designs behind its inception and explain why we chose it as the location of our first campaign shoot. Thamesmead was part of a huge wave of housing developments built after World War Two,
  • Unmade meets Opendesk (Originally published on the UMd.studio Journal, 11th August 2016) We visited the East London home of Opendesk and spoke to product designers Scarlett San Martin and Josh Worley about shaking up the furniture industry. Opendesk are an online platform that connects customers with a global community of furniture makers and designers. Wherever you are in the world you can select a design and have it produced by a local maker - or download the files to make it yourself. And not only can the designs be produced locally but they can also be adapted to utilise local materials too. A desk in China, for example, might be made from bamboo, which is much easier to source than plywood. And we can vouch for them first hand - the Unmade team work from Opendesk's Unit Tables in our studio. So how did it all start? The prototype desk, a bespoke design by Opendesk co-founders Joni Steiner and Nick Ierodiaconou, was commissioned back in 2011 for Mint Digital’s new London office [keen readers of the Journal may recall that Mint was where Mayku founders Alex Smilansky and Ben Redford joined forces]. Cut using a CNC (Computer Numeric Control) router and hand finished in London, the challenge came when they were later tasked with making the same desks for Mint’s New York office. Rather than ship a piece of furniture made in London to the US, they had the idea of sending the digital fabrication files to New York and manufacturing the desks there locally. And with this, a brilliant idea was born.
