Central Saint Martins Pop-Up Store

Degree show season is just about to swoop down on us, so it's good to see the second year students from Central Saint Martins BA Graphic Design course getting in ahead of the game - by more than a year.

They opened their 2060 pop-up shop yesterday at 99 Clerkenwell Road (just along from Magma), and it's a corker, selling multiples by 103 of the students (each of them producing 20 of their individual product - hence the 2060 name). The shop is the final part of a six week project, and they're also going to be hosting a series of design events while the shop is open (until 7 June).

If this is their second year show, the third year show should be a belter...
