London's Brompton Road is having a series of interesting pop-up events at the moment. As well as the Skandium sale shop earlier this month, it's now hosting the Ascher Studio pop-up display.
Zika Ascher is well known for his role in the fabric industry in the twentieth century, providing fabric for everyone from Dior to Mary Quant. He's especially celebrated for the 'Artists Squares' series, when from the mid-Forties to the mid-Fifties he invited 51 artists such as Henry Moore, Picasso and Barbara Hepworth to design scarves – with the aim that contemporary art would in turn inspire innovative textile design.
