The Power of Paah! : London 08

We have been hunting down the most exciting conceptual creative work at this year’s degree shows and are delighted to bring a hand picked selection to the heart of Covent Garden at Designersblock London 2008.

KithKin are fascinated by that moment when you look at something, when it strikes you with its brilliance, for some it raises a wry smile, others laugh out loud, some want to touch it and others pronounce “paah”.
