Meanwhile in Stoke Newington opened in December 2012 as a collaborative project between Meanwhile Space and East London Furniture, supported by Hackney Council.

Transforming a former furniture shop on Stoke Newington High Street, the project has created a space which gives Hackney creatives and entrepreneurs the opportunity to showcase their work, as well as access to affordable studio/workshop space, from which they can launch their business concepts from.

The two latest projects to go live in the space from Saturday 2nd March are lifestyle boutique Yeradessa and creative agency TestSpace – joining the existing East London Furniture showroom/café and Meanwhile exhibition space.

Influenced and inspired by analogue lifestyle, mid-century consumerism and twentieth century nostalgia, Yeradessa offers unique items from the recent past as well as contemporary gifts, homeware and lifestyle products including instant analogue photography from Impossible Project. Yeradessa will also host weekend Polaroid photography workshops and other events throughout the month.

Test Space is a creative agency making use of temporary, short term and abandoned property to develop innovative ways to showcase artists and their work. The Test Space temporary concept store and gallery will show off the talents of illustrators, printmakers and street artists from across the UK.

Make sure to check out the space before they close on 27th March –

Yeardessa is open every day (except Mondays) 11am – 6pm.
