Continuing at the newly opened Plateaux Gallery is Furniture Incognito, an exhibition by three contemporary furniture designers. Caius Shaw displays his sloping writing desk and lamp, Andrea Nechels exhibits her table, which conceals two stools in a way which makes the piece look like a large cube, and Gitta Gschwendtner shows her chest of drawers. While you are there, visit the rest of the gallery for a range of glass, ceramics and metal. Until 25 May.

Venue: Plateaux Gallery, 1 Brewery Square, Tower Bridge Piazza, London SE1.
