Guess what’s behind this door?


This non-descript door, next to a non-descript grocery shop on Kingsland Road. Give up? It’s a brilliant Jasper Morrison shop! Selling lots of lovely minimalist, utilitarian stuff that costs not a lot of money. Cone-shaped Indian tea glasses, Italian staplers, mini Japanese ink pads, numerous bottle openers, wooden spoons, little red ashtrays…the list goes on and on. 

I couldn’t resist touching everything because each and every item demands to be picked up, held and inspected. Being the retail tourist that I am, I had to have a souvenir so I opted for a yellow stapler and some wee boxes of staples. Total cost, £11. Can’t wait to go back.
