Good things in London are hidden: walk the street far away from the common and popular  places and attactions, and you always find something creative and lovely. It’s the London life, where the energy is spread into ideas and passions. I was really happy to discover “Labour And Wait” last week. I was walking around Brick Lane during a sunny and lazy sunday, and i just jumped into Redchurch Street, a little quiet street close to the most famous Brick Lane. At the n.85 there’s “Labour And Wait“, it seems a shop but there’s more beyond.

It’s a long story of design, tradition, research. Simon Watkins and Rachel Wythe Moran, the owners, opened the store ten years ago following their passion for  the old furniture and  for some pieces of modern and useful design as well. But be careful, it’s not a second hand store! They search for specialist maker from around the world, and their philosophy is to select timeless products which celebrate functional design and that never will be out of date. An instance? A great brushes collection, collected by the owners during years: a range from a nineteenth century clothes brush to a modern Japanese plasterer’s brush and a Swedish floor scrubber! Simply amazing! Keep you update about “Labour and wait” on its tumblr

Nella vita ho ricevuto due doni: una buona scrittura e una buona dose di curiosità. Forse avrei voluto ricevere anche il dono artistico del musicista, perchè le note per me valgono più di mille parole. Allora uso spesso la tastiera per raccontare di musica... ma non solo.
