From 27th April until October 2018, renowned British designer Margaret Howell brings her understated aesthetic to Tate Modern’s inspirational Tate Edit shop. Invited to guest edit the shop by simply selecting pieces she loves, the result is a carefully curated, highly personal selection of products evocative of the impeccably crafted lifestyle selection you’ll find in Margaret’s central London Wigmore Street shop. With a product offer that criss-crosses price bands and categories and ranges from homeware from Anglepoise®, Robert Welch and Ercol amongst others, to exclusive Japanese glassware and Margaret Howell clothing and accessories, it’s Margaret’s unwavering eye for quality, tactility, functionality and longevity that seamlessly binds the collection together. All come beautifully presented in this unique retail space overlooking the Thames, designed by renowned British designer Jasper Morrison in collaboration with architects Herzog & de Meuron.
‘Tate Modern is an outstanding example of large scale design and conversion. But in its own way Tate Edit is just as impressive. Pared-down, calm, reflective, it is a gem of minimalism – a perfect place to display a selection of my favourite designs.’
