As part of Studio Brief 2 we are making fragments of precedent studies given to us by Takeshi and Simon. For Arimasutonbiru we are are casting concrete and using a technique with open form work and vinyl to create sculptural elements. This required us to have sheets of latex. After a quick phone call to a place near Oxford Circus to check they had it in stock I was on my way to Soho to collect it.
Cloth House shop is on Berwick street leading directly south from Oxford Street. It has a small frontage with a neat, well kept entrance. Inside there is a long thin shop with a small change in level. Half way along a steep sharp set of stairs descend into the basement where the technical fabrics are kept. On first though you can’t comprehend how such a specialist shop affords the costs of central London however having spent half an hour inside selecting fabrics you realise that it is in strong health, supplying students and professionals with all manner of fabric based products.
