Dezeen and The Temporium
Dezeen created The Temporium to take the design they champion in their online publication to the streets of London. Their first physical pop-up shop launched in December 2010 which was included in Time Out’s top 5 picks for independent Christmas stores in London and they repeated the success in December 2011 with an even bigger event in Covent Garden. We hope to bring their incredible eye for curation to design lovers across Europe.

It was launched at the end of November 2006 and has grown rapidly to become one of the most popular and influential architecture and design blogs on the internet and now receives over two million visits a month with traffic doubling every year.
