The exhibition includes works commissioned by the British Council over the last 15 years, by designers such as Tom Dixon, Peter Kennard, Pearson Lloyd, Sebastian Berge, Nigel Shafran, Michael Marriott and Anthony Burrill. Four unique dresses by Basso & Brooke, inspired by their exchange trip to Uzbekistan, will also be on display.
Architectural photographs, products, prints and new pieces produced by Goldsmiths University as part of an up-cycling project will be sold throughout the week by silent auction.
All funds raised by the sale will go towards a new British Council fellowship that will allow emerging UK designers to work in Brazil.
