Immerse yourself in a striking installation by Adam Nathaniel Furman created in collaboration with Terkishceramics which will take centre stage over the fountains of Granary Square. ‘Gateways’ presents a series of colourful tiled gates that will invite visitors to take a journey through the rich history of ceramics in Turkey. The four gates are four meters high, each encompassing a different design story including: The Classic Gate, The Timber Gate, The Retro Gate and The Metro Gate.
Touring designjunction can be tiring, refuel and get inspired inside the Cubitt Park’s 2LG X Custhom interactive café.
