Yesterday we went to interview Apfel, a practice for everyday life. This is a really beautiful studio in East London which has even more beautiful work. Kirsty and Emma gave us a really great interview, it was very honest and really inspirational. They expressed how they felt design education was essential and that its the people you meet in education who are invaluable to you. Kirsty and Emma met while at the RCA and told us the lovely story of how they first planned to set up a studio in a kind of traveling studio/ library/ cafe, it sounded amazing but luckily for everyone they settled in London and created Apfel. They also talked about how common sense and independence/ determination were some of the greatest qualities to have. It was a really great interview, Thank you very much.
