Guests at luxury London hotels looking to pick up unique and stylish home accessories may want to consider visiting the Hayward Gallery where Undergrowth Design’s Tina Tsang has a range of products in its store.
As part of the This Is Not Pop-up event, a semi-regular occurrence when designers shop their products away from their usual retail spot, the one-time retail and exhibition space showcases Ms Tsang’s quirky cake stands, tea sets, glassware and furniture.
Ms Tsang graduated from Central Saint Martins in 2005 in illustration and animation, following which she has been working on films, paintings, animations, photography and costume designs as well as fashion and trend forecasting.
“[This] has enabled her to have a broad understanding of aesthetics and trends within the design world. She uses an interdisciplinary approach to designing and feels that her experience in many design disciplines helps enrich the quality and depth of her work,” comments Undergrowth Design.
“She enjoys making products that interact with the user on an emotional level making objects of desire of an heirloom quality that we can keep and treasure.”
Her work has been exhibited in London’s Old Sweet Shop, Newcastle’s Gosforth Park Christmas Fair, Maison Object in Paris and many other venues.
The Hayward Gallery is part of the Southbank Centre and has been praised as one of the capital’s most important places for displaying contemporary art by Lonely Planet magazine.
First opened by the Queen in 1968, the building is an example of 60s brutalist architecture and, alongside the Barbican, is one of the few surviving buildings of this style.
