G-d I love these chairs

In the run up to the London Design Festival, the London Transport Museum has teamed up with design company Squint to pay homage to some of the iconic moquette patterns used on the tube, including the bold District Line pattern designed by Misha Black back in 1978, as well as the unmistakable Green Line moquette. These colourful bespoke chairs feature a mix of archive moquette mixed with bold and beautiful contemporary velvet.

This collaboration between London Transport Museum and Squint looks set to continue with specially commissioned furniture, which will be available to buy from the London Transport Museum shop from September onwards. The first chair in the collection will be shown at Tent London between 22nd and 25th September where the chair will be entered into a prize draw and won by a Tent visitor to the stand. Good luck if you get to visit…
