The Dock
The Dock is a canal-side design destination instigated by Tom Dixon in the Victorian, industrial estate of Portobello Dock. This season Europe shows new signs of vigour with infamous Parisian home concept store Merci invading with a pop-up store whilst Slovenian design star Nika Zupanc and Dutch genius Piet Hein Eek join us in our shop . Moooi reveal their new installation entitled ‘The Unexpected Welcome’. Stevie Parle’s Dock Kitchen restaurant and newly opened Tart bakery serve lunches, dinner, snacks and drinks through-out the festival.
