Future Map takes over Selfridges window

University of the Arts London’s bright young things are taking over one of Selfridges’ world famous windows this January and February.  Seven recent graduates have been selected from the University’s Future Map 11 show, which represents the best of last year’s degree shows, to showcase their latest work in art, accessories, ceramics, lighting and product design.

Unveiled on 6 January, the Duke Street window display has been designed by studio XAG and features work by Future Map 11 exhibitors Chieh Ting Huang, Pip Jolley, Alex Kwan, Joanna Mires, Matthew Nicholson, Karin Soderquist and Jy Yeon Suh.  Highlights include Matthew Nicholson’s paper template of a Leica M3 camera that can be made into a working pinhole camera, Chieh Ting Huang’s handmade wood and paper lanterns and Pip Jolley’s jewellery inspired by 1940s hair rollers and clips.

A temporary in store shop will sell limited editions of their work with items priced between £12 and £300, representing a rare chance to buy from the graduates destined to define our visual landscape. The window residency is part of Selfridges’ Bright Young Things season, which provides a platform for up and coming British artists and designers.
