Hackney House, which will be open from May until mid September, will provide a showcase for Hackney’s businesses such as leading digital and creative industries, retail and hospitality, fashion and interior designers.
Occupying a site moments from Shoreditch High Street station, Hackney House is designed to be a networking hub for the world’s media throughout the Olympic Games season, highlighting everything the Olympic borough has to offer. The exciting temporary venue, designed to capitalise on the increased media attention generated by the Games, has been furnished by PearsonLloyd and boasts a media centre for journalists, exhibitions and events as well as a programme of live events and entertainment over the summer months.
SCP is getting involved in the Designer Showcase part of the hub. Curated by Dezeen and Beatrice Galilee, the showcase features a wall of exhibition cages displaying the work of influential designers and companies from the vibrant borough. We will be occupying the ‘Guest Curated’ cage for the next three weeks.
