Universal Design Studio has designed interiors for 1930s-style furniture shop Isokon, which has moved to an 1880s former industrial building in London’s Turnham Green. The consultancy has retained the building’s original cog lift and has incorporated a birch ply staircase. The store entrance will now be separate from the workshops, where the original 1930s designs are still manufactured. Contemporary designs by Michael Sodeau and Barber Osgerby Associates will also be on show. The Isokon shop opened to the public on 8 December.
