A famous poet once said: ‘Tired of London, tired of life’. There’s no place in the world with such a creative buzz as the UK capital. That makes London the ideal place for hotspotting. Where to eat, where to sleep, where to shop? Londonista An Bogaerts leads the way.

Mint Shop

Kensington

What? Mint Shop is a place to get inspired, a gallery and a shop in one. An absolute must-visit for anyone who’s into design. Shop owner Lina Kanafani is a master in mixing experimental pieces and curating refreshing installations. New design-talents are launched right here. Mint Shop is not exactly the place to make impulse purchases, neither is it the place to make big incautious movements. A lot of the pieces on show are exclusive or made in only limited editions.

Looks? TimeOut magazine described Mint Shop as ‘a Dali painting coming to life’. Lina Kanafani creates extraordinary installations that balance on the thin line between art and design.

What Else? In the Mint Shop neighbourhood there are some other interesting places for design-lovers like The Conran Shop and Skandium. The Victoria & Albert Museum is also very near.

Info? Every day from 10.30am to 6.30pm, Thurs from 10.30am to 7.30pm
