For London Design Festival 2012, Traces were asked by Tom Dixon to be part of Be Open’s flash market for emerging designers to show, sell, produce and explore the five senses with the freshest ideas, at The Dock.

For one week at the Tom Dixon Dock, ‘Traces’ presents a teaser event – the Traces ‘Junk’ Shop.  With inspiration taken from the nearby Portobello market, we invited the public to come rummage through our wares to see if they could grab themselves a bargain. But just who is the shop keeper? Where did all this stuff come from? What’s it’s story? And how much does it cost?! So many questions to answer!

With a wonderful collection of homewares, art and fashion, all made by some of the best emerging design talent in the UK, this really was a Junk Shop with a difference.
