The British Council’s Posh touring exhibition opens on Friday at the Tallinn Art House Gallery in Tallinn, Estonia, before travelling to Russia, Korea, Yugoslavia and Poland. Designed by Una (London) with illustrator Paul Slater and Stickland Coombe Architects, the show examines how Britain’s traditional and luxury brands are ‘coping with an increasingly egalitarian society’, and how they are transforming themselves through contemporary design. Among those brands under the spotlight are Pringle, Garrard, Portmeirion, Wedgwood and British Airways. For more information about the exhibition see www.britishcouncil.org.
