Most designers will tell you just how important their school lessons in Design and Technology were, especially when it came to deciding to follow a creative career path. This is true of furniture designer Michael Marriott. The value he places on design education has led him to teach in many universities, but never before in a school. Until now…In September 2017, Michael joined forces with Andrée Cooke, an expert in contemporary art and design, to revamp a neglected common room in King Alfred School in north London. But rather than wade in and do the job themselves, Michael and Andrée recruited 15 students aged between 12 and 14 to help get the job done.

CHEMEX Is back out! I only use this in the cold winter mornings. If you take the time to get good at it, it makes REALLY good coffee. It is a very slow process though and takes nearly 30 mins. It is perfect if you need something to stimulate your mind first thing in the morning like me. Happy Friday!
