Made in Brighton
Brighton is a place where unusual and innovative things are made - from Volks Electric Railway to the Isetta (bubble) car in the 1950s.
Portslade's Millimetre is a recent example of this fine tradition. They are a multi-award winning community of bold, playful and meticulous makers and designers - a forward-thinking group of daring perfectionists, known for combining grand scale with tiny detail in projects such as A House For Essex (Grayson Perry, 2015) Double Space (V&A, 2014) and A Room For London (Living Architecture, 2011).
All of these projects were shown to us in short films during Marc Thomas and Matthew Ridsdale's interactive and informal session on 11 January. The audience appreciated the opportunity to ask questions during the presentation on their impressive portfolio.
Established in 2006, the team of 21 staff and associates has worked on over 100 projects with leading artists like Grayson Perry, architects including Make and global brands such as BMW.
Millimetre has worked in conjunction with London Design Festival, the Victoria & Albert Museum, Channel 4, the Science Museum, the RCA, Transport for London and others to produce some of the UK’s most talked-about work.
It offers a complete 'wraparound' service, from conceptualisation and planning through to building, development, installation and ongoing maintenance for the life of the project.
