Designed in Hackney: Hoxton-based designer Michael Marriott created a landscape of cardboard tubes to display items on show at this year's Designs of the Year exhibition at London's Design Museum. The winning entries for each category will be revealed at an awards ceremony tomorrow evening.
Plywood discs slotted on top of each tube provide surfaces at a variety of different heights, while information for each project is presented on balanced steel stands.
Accompanying graphics for the exhibition were created by design studio A Practice for Everyday Life, who are based just outside Hackney in the neighbouring borough of Tower Hamlets.
We'll reveal the winning entries on Dezeen as soon as they're announced, but until then you can see all the entries in our earlier story here.
Michael Marriott started his design studio back in 1992 and is located on Southgate Road in Hoxton. See more of his projects here.

Designed in Hackney is a Dezeen initiative to showcase world-class architecture and design created in the borough, which is one of the five host boroughs for the London 2012 Olympic Games as well as being home to Dezeen’s offices. We’ll publish buildings, interiors and objects that have been designed in Hackney each day until the games this summer.
