Laboratory S by Lion Studio
A 'concept' designer store in Aldgate selling clothing, jewellery, homeware, art and tech. And the concept? To create a 'community for creativity'. So while you can pick up a trendy watch here, you can also mill around taking in the visual delights at your own leisure. Set in stark white minimalist surrounds, with exposed wooden floorboards, Laboratory S gives the impression of an art gallery, which it is in a way. The 'pieces' on sale have been made by contemporary fashion designers, artists and scientists – yes, real life scientists come up with the innovative tech you can purchase here, such as the Resound No.2 oak and ceramic iPhone amplifier. Laboratory S also hosts pop-up shops and fashion workshops in the space. See their website for further details.
