Rolling Cass exhibition space in Aldgate
The Loom is a former textile warehouse that was recently refurbished to provide office and art space in Aldgate.
The Cass collaborated with Loom to create a series of ever-evolving exhibitions featuring emerging talent for their entrance space on the ground floor. This has created a unique opportunity for students to deal with the complex processes of working with a client to develop and refine a brief for a series of interventions in a historic building close to where they study.
Autumn 2018’s show, Making Matters #3 was part of London Design Festival and featured in London Open House; and continues to evolve the collaboration between The Cass and Art Space at the Loom. The pieces explored and reinvigorated the making processes which richly identify and resonate with the history of the Loom building.
The work by students and alumni from The Cass explore the complex processes of designing and making and showcases emerging talent. Work from Furniture and Product Design BA, Jewellery and Silversmithing, Textile Design BA, Fashion BA and Architecture RIBA 2 MArch were all shown in the exhibition space.
