The Cass Summer Show Part 2
The Cass opened the second part of their summer show last week at Central House.
Date: 1 July 2015
For its second instalment this year The Cass Summer Show Part 2 is showcasing work from the Architecture, Interiors, Furniture, Jewellery & Silversmithing, Product Design, Fashion Design and Textile courses until 4 July 2015.
The exhibition opened on June 26 with a packed private view and the annual Architecture Awards. Robert Mull, Dean of the Faculty gave out prizes honouring students for their portfolios, dissertations essays and development. The Awards include an annual prize awarded to a student from our partner college The Moscow School of Architecture. This year Mary Tyulkanova attended the event from Russia to receive her 2014 award and to announce the 2015 winner.
The Cass Bank Gallery has been overtaken by incredible baroque structures created by Architecture students studying in the Re-Imagining the Baroque studio. Alongside these powerful structures Cass Technician Jude Dennis has displayed her Stackers series of chairs. The chairs are in varying states of make and earlier this year she toured them to Milan as part of the Salone Internazionale del Mobile.
The rest of central house has become a rabbit warren of creativity; work from the architecture, interior design, fashion design, product design, jewellery and furniture students has flooded the building.
For the first year the summer show includes Fashion Design. Led by Aimee McWilliams, course leader on BA Fashion, the students have created exceptional garments for Project Red and most recently a series of capes made in collaboration with The Whitechapel Gallery. The creations greet visitors as they enter the second floor.
Final projects from the third year students in the jewellery studios sit on make shift walls, supported by work from first and second years who work collaboratively in the Alchemy and Bespoke and Make studios which spans all year groups.
The work by furniture students creates a miniature show room at the university. A mixture of chairs, tables, lights, cabinets, stools, shelves and screens made from various types of wood, resin and plastic are a shining example of the quality coming out of The London College of Furniture in 2015.
Foundation students in every discipline get the opportunity to showcase their creativity on the first floor while The Cass’ architects spread over the third and fourth floors with impressive handmade models of inventive ideas.
