If the East End is a hot bed of new designers, then the Oxo Tower is definitely the place to go to see designers ready to take their work to the next level. Located on the South Bank and a short walk to the Tate Modern – the Oxo Tower was a revitalization project that brought shopping, galleries, restaurants and housing to the former derelict site.
The work here is excellent and ran the gamut of product design from fashion to home to art. The idea behind the Oxo Tower is to allow designers to combine studio and shop space in a format that allows the public to meet emerging designers and buy directly.
