Blue Mountain School

Post-Frieze, I went off piste to visit the Blue Mountain School, a fascinating temple to the most rigorous, Shaker-like, environmental, anti-consumerism: four floors of exhibition space and one of a shrine to Nuno Mendes, all designed by 6a in a deliberately rough-shod way.

I wasn’t allowed to photograph the basement archive where old collections from Hostem are stored in rolling metal racks.

Upstairs is gallery space showing work by Valentin Loellmann, a conceptual furniture maker:-

On the floor above is more work by Loellmann and a small selection of ceramics:-

And then best of all is the hanging metal staircase up to the private room on the top floor:-
