The Shoreditch Design Triangle is a loose association of shops, exhibitions and showrooms, united by little more than geography, but it always serves up something wonderful, and often something pretty weird too. Starting with the latter, London-based Mexican designer Fernando Laposse transformed the entrance to CitizenM’s Shoreditch hotel into Sisal Sanctum – an outdoor seating area protected by pretty gloomy looking “giant guardians” – all entirely made out of sisal, a natural fiber harvested from a species of Agave cactus found in the South of Mexico.

GLOW is a relatively new brand, one of the first to compete with the only brand that existed in Mexico in the category of low-fruity alcoholic beverages. In its launch it sold many bottles, surpassing its initial production due to its refreshing and contemporary design, made in Tailor. Seeing this, the competition launched a campaign to counter the success of GLOW. We were also the authors of the names of the flavors of the line, and to date. It is still one of the best re-designs we have made.

This week, a couple of hundred venture capitalists descended on the Computer History Museum in Mountain View, California, for Y Combinator's twice-annual Demo Day. The event showcases graduates of the famous incubator's training program to investors who hope to sniff out the next Dropbox, Airbnb, or Stripe, all of which emerged from Y Combinator. But increasingly, the entrepreneurs marching onto the stage are as likely to be experts at manipulating molecules as writing lines of code.

Cities are in a constant state of flux as new neighborhoods are developed, gentrification quickly changes areas and demographics, and people come and go. There are few cities where the old and the new live side by side quite as much as in London, where narrow streets filled with Victorian housing sit next to gigantic, glass-covered tech towers. For the third iteration of the city’s Art Night, the focus is fittingly on the idea of "home," based on the context of the local area: South London’s South Bank, Battersea Power Station, Vauxhall and Nine Elms.
