Pop Up and Rock with WaWa

Wawa, founded by Richard Ward, based in Shoreditch near Columbia Road Flower Market creates classically contemporary seating and sleeping creations with distinctive upholstery. www.wawa.co.uk.

Richard, a trained sculptor and one time film set designer is re-launching his Rocking Chair design vis a vis a series of playful events around London. The first one will take place in Clifton Nurseries, Maida Vale – established in 1851 and owned by Lord Rothschild.

We are inviting select fabric / textile designers, established and recently graduated to share a sampling of their “works of art” with us to dress one rocker frame for these Pop Up Installation. The Rocker is a lightweight and flexible design which folds to only 6 inches.

We will be widely publicising the Pop Up installations to the media as well as collaborating closely with the venues’ PR marketing communications people the Rockers will pop up in.

This is all part of Wawa’s Celebration of their anniversary and British Design.
