The Forum, designed by TA!LAB
The Forum // Toxic Wonderland
Celebrating the intersection of art, architecture and visual culture, the installation envisioned for the Forum recreates and queers the classical image of a Victorian flower garden. Toxic Wonderland is Alice’s garden gone wrong, a savage interpretation of a daydream in beautifully hand-woven macramé.

Are a design partnership that consists of Cynthia Wong and Karl Mok - two architectural designers who think unconventionally. As a studio, TA!LAB combines the physical with the intangible - crafting spaces that are instantly engaging to hold the attention of a generation of social media savvy consumers. TA! stands for Tangible Amusements - a catchphrase to describe what is created by the intersection of design, space and branding. But it is also what they like to hear for a job well done, ‘‘TA!’
Gwendoline Porte Design
Part-way between sculpture and furniture, RAILS is a modern system for fluid living. The concept was inspired by the form of railway tracks and the concept of ‘journey’. Designed in London, handcrafted in Italy, the first collection of RAILS functional sculptures bring momentum, energy and flexibility, shaping their environment with endless combinations. The pieces can lie horizontally or vertically or multiplied.
After a well-received launch at this year’s Clerkenwell Design Week, Gwendoline Porte’s RAILS is to be available to view at the Design Museum, London, and to buy via its online shop.
