Fundamentals of Caring Exhibition

Expect the foundations of the interior design at Hart Shoreditch to be shattered into tiny pieces, revealing an interactive adventure like no other. Join James Daw, the mastermind behind it all, as he teams up with the amazing 4D animator Lisa Sheehan and the talented photographer/art assistant Anna Rotar. Together, they’ll bring this masterpiece to life, with the Fundamentals of Caring Exhibition breaking things down to their core shapes and forms, only to mould and sculpt them into extraordinary totems and icons using wood, recycled materials, hardware, and 3D printing. From the tiniest screw to the grandest design detail, Hart proudly displays itself on its curiosity shelves. But that’s not all—prepare to be enchanted by the scents of metal, wood, and leather, expertly crafted by Aromatise, which will fill the stairwell play pit, complete with a bespoke aroma that captures Hart Shoreditch’s heritage. And to quench your thirst, Will Martin’s ceramic art pieces serving water, inspired by Victorian bottles found in the area, will be sure to delight. These earthy-toned, hand-thrown water bottles not only reflect the hotel’s history and craftsmanship but also promote sustainability. Visit the exhibition for a truly immersive experience.
