designed with dementia

The store is now closed but we will be doing something similar soon please keep an eye out.

Everything inside this limited-edition shop has been co-designed with people who are living with dementia or shaped by projects they have undertaken. The products embody expressive experiments by people living with dementia that result in unique patterns, ideas and products.

All profits from the sale of our limited-edition products generate income for our co-designers (who are living with dementia) and the charities that support them.
