"Up for grabs is a chance to own the winner of this minor showing-off contest.So, without further ado…. this weekend we’ll pit the honed and toned athleticism of Sebastian Bergne’s ‘BANDIT’ against the solid sturdy gumption of Christopher Jarratt’s ‘SLINGSHOT’ in a battle of firing skills including; accuracy, distance, impact, and blammo (not sure what that is yet, but we’ll think of something)."
If you’d like to take a punt at securing yourself the winner, each a fine example of British design and fun, then email Spunique with your name and a contact number HERE. The winner will be selected at random on Monday 17 October.

The Vitra backed Hidden Heroes exhibition featuring the Cityscape coat hangers and Slingshots, has taken residence in the Designhuis, Enidhoven until the 25th May.
From paperclip to pencil, from condom to Velcro, and from press stud to clothes peg. Based on an idea as simple as it was ingenious , these Hidden Heroes of everyday life are actually the ultimate examples of sustainability and functional aesthetics. This exhibition of 35 everyday classics, their history and significance is produced by the Vitra Design Museum in Weil am Rhein; the first stop on its journey across the world is the Netherlands.

If you can make it come down for the private view on the 14 April, 6-9pm.
CLICK HERE FOR INVITE.
By invitation designers have been paired with different, yet complimentary practices, to create new work. The intention is to nurture the creativity of conversation, and to encourage new discoveries through an exchange of skills. They have all been asked to make something new, something that functions and something that uses the following quote as its starting point:
‘The first step towards getting somewhere is to decide that you are not going to stay where you are.’ John Pierpont Morgan
