Here is a perfect example of an unexpected workplace housed in a “third space”, it was designed by Tom Dixon on the occasion of the Clerkenwell Design Week 2016 in London: a co-working space within St. James Church, including a talk on the topic Design and Spirituality.
The church evolves and changes the use of its own spaces, thanks to the Tom Dixon’s creativity and the collaboration of Andrew Baughen Vicar of St James’.
“The Church” is an unusual installation which adds to the contemplative and spiritual spirit of an heritage site a comfortale set for new ways of working: a new feature for a church. The large volume of St. James, a classic church of 17th century, was the amazing place to present in London the pieces of furniture already hosted inside the Rotonda della Besana (a former church, too) during the Milan Design Week.
The large chandelier in the center of the cerulean ceiling, the furnishings for the co-working and the kitchen will be permanently donated to the church and to his community.
