The second iyouall store is the latest welcome addition to East Dulwich, an expansion of design agency iya studio, whose first store and studio space is based in Deptford SE8. iya studio was set up 10 years ago by graphic designer, Matt Cottis and interior designer, Fleur Paterson.
The idea to open a store developed from Fleur’s interior projects, designing and buying for the projects she has created. Fleur’s buying and styling skills opened up a wider platform to display designer homewares and stationery. The aim, as well as stocking a comprehensive choice of products from well-known key brands, such as Hay,
Ferm Living, Normann Copenhagen, Oyoy, Ommo & Areaware, is to develop a range of products by the designers themselves and to embrace their multi-disciplined practice as well as the wider creative community.
In the coming year iyouall plan to run events from the shop, including making workshops and talks.
iyouall is as inclusive as it sounds with prices starting at £5, it’s guaranteed there is something for everyone.
