30.09.2008 To coincide with London Design Week and London Fashion week KithKin are taking over a window in Selfridges flagship store on Oxford Street, London.
Through a combination of indecision and greed we have split the space into six sections, one to be Revealed each week.
The window has been running for 4 weeks and is well under way, pop down to take a look. One segment remains empty, with one lucky person claiming the
space, see the link for details.

24.09.2008 The exhibition at DesignersBlock, Covent Garden, has come to an end. All the boxes are packed away, the paah posters have all gone, and the work hopefully ingrained in peoples minds.
Thanks to all those that visited, came to our party or exhibited. Special thanks to the proactive peeps, Nick Rhodes and DesignersBlock.
If you missed the show you can view all the projects online...http://www.kith-kin.co.uk/presents/london-08/

01.09.2008 Much respect to Dave and Joss for wrestling 30 helium balloons and 30 cardboard boxes down to the post office, and then enduring the joy of an English queue.
Yes the KithKin London Design Festival press pack has gone out, a lucky few will be receiving a helium balloon in the post shortly.
Apologies to those who are scalpel happy when opening parcels.
13.08.2008 I just found a folder of lovely images on my desktop (yes my desktop is a dangerous jungle of stuff).
Its a collection of images we collated when concepting our download shop SomeRightsReserved.
Lovely street pirates and dodgy copies.
09.08.2008 We're please to announce KithKin Presents London 08. We're in the process of compiling the show right now, and already have a fine selection of lovely things for your delectation.
