Universal Works Present: Designability

Universal Works

Revolution is a catalyst for innovation: political, physical, intellectual and artistic. Revolutionary creativity evolves traditional ideas to make something new and exciting.

To celebrate our SS17 collection, Universal Works are holding a series of events at our Nottingham store that explores all things Revolution. Read an interview with David Keyte about the company and what they stand for here >

Join us at our Broad Street Store at Rough Trade Nottingham for a special free screening of Barcelona based Otoxo Productions's latest documentary: Designability telling the story of design studio La Casa de Carlota

'In a visual world, original design is more valuable than ever – and harder to find.
As advertising agencies strive to be different, one just is.
La Casa de Carlota produces beautiful campaigns for clients like Nestlé, San Miguel, Danone and Barcelona’s City Council, competing with the best in the business.
Their artists have Down’s syndrome and autism. Their conditions, that so many see as their flaws, are at the heart of the company’s success.
Design-ability explores the value of difference through the experiences of Odile, Joan, Quim, Carlo and Sophie and their unique approach to their lives, work and creativity.'

Check out the trailer here: www.otoxoproductions.com

FLOOR ONE AT Rough Trade Nottingham is LIFT ACCESSIBLE AND ALL AGES ARE WELCOME.

7PM START.
