Industrial Facility is the London-based design office of Sam Hecht, Kim Colin and Ippei Matsumoto. A studio primarily designing mass produced goods, Industrial Facility take pleasure in the anonymity of everyday items, applying intellectual rigour, high design values and vision to products such as coffee makers, stationary and kitchen utensils.
Running alongside the exhibition of their recent projects was a selection of items Sam Hecht had amassed that cost ‘Under a Fiver’. Drawn from all over the world, each of these items tells a story about contemporary culture, the nature of manufacture and marketing and the way we see and use things. These items are not just souvenirs and there are no famous names behind them or manuals required to operate them. These items exist from a human need which is local not global and cost under five pounds.
This exhibition is available to hire. For more information about hosting this exhibition at your museum or gallery please contact email@example.com
