The show will be exhibiting a series of unusual furniture pieces by Wormhole Design, which company founder Andy Jacobs describes as ‘sharp, angular forms married with a diverse range of high-grade wood, wrapped in an ultra-contemporary package’.

Jacobs’ work is influenced by the digital world and music, looking to bring something new to the rather more traditional world of cabinet making that he works within.

The walls of the gallery displaying the pieces will be brightened up by the work of Paul Catherall, including new works such as a piece for the Simon Armitage poem ‘A Vision’, commissioned by publisher Faber.

Around 22 prints will be on display, showcasing Catherall’s distinctive clean, clear linocut style. He often draws on London’s architecture for his work, as shown in pervious shows such as his 2012 series and his Modernist-infused pieces at last year’s Oxo Tower show.
