Not strictly on my list at all (unless you count it as item 19) but I wanted to give a small shout to Design Mart, as not only was the preview a very nice event but it was filled full of really rather wonderfully clever, north east design folks who (mostly) also happen to be chums. The Design Event opening (held at BALTIC) was also teamed with a swift bit of tea and couple of glasses of the good stuff with my wee brother and his lady friend. All in all, a nice night. Here are some of the things I enjoyed from the show.
