The second year graphic design students on Central Saint Martins’ BA course are about a year ahead of anyone else when it comes to their degree show planning. They’ve already put the wheels in motion to raise vast sums to help launch themselves professionally when they graduate. In order to do so they’ve got a pop-up shop in progress that aims to be the most expensive concept store the world has ever seen. In it they’ll be selling one-off pieces for up to one million pounds, although the more their website is shared through social media channels, the lower the price will get.
Currently there retail price of objects stands at £25,989 – which is still an exorbitant sum – but we’re trying to knock them down a bit for when we head over later in the week. The location of the store is still a closely-guarded secret, but frankly we don’t care where it is as long as the price is right.
