The Russian Club Gallery has taken artists, graphic designers and illustrators out of their comfort zones for its latest show, challenging them to create pieces of furniture or functional objects.
An offshoot of the London space's current Sameness & Difference exhibition - exploring how artists engage with furniture as a medium, muse or subject - Designers Furniture defies interdisciplinary boundaries.
