Kirkby Design


The sentimental concept of this collaboration between Kirkby Design and Transport For London stemmed from the 150 year anniversary of the London Underground. Kirkby Design has recreated five archetypal designs influenced by five different subway lines: District, Marylebone, Southbank, Piccadilly and Bakerloo. Each piece of furniture draws inspiration from the original moquettes used on the public transport systems, whilst giving them a modern and contemporary edge. The result? Repetitive retro geometric patterns and colours from Kirkby Designs' distinctive palette. This fusion between historical and contemporary creates pieces with a strong sense of nostalgia... and we love it. See more at kirkbydesign.com. Text Michaela Stehr
