SCP Design Department Store
Meet. Browse. Relax. Have a beer. All the bases are covered at the Design Department Store during London Design Festival, 17th to 25th September 2011. This inaugural event is both a design exhibition and a working department store taking over both floors of SCP East. Open until 8pm every night, we will have exclusive international launches and installations with items on show available to purchase. All accompanied by music, coffee from Olympia Express and pints by East End stalwart, Truman's Beer. Pop down, stay a while.
