Function 13 Brings Design, Tech to Kensington Market

I first discovered Function 13 when I stopped by The Touch Show at Pixel Gallery. (Videos here). The gallery and the store occupy the same space, with Function 13 at the front and Pixel relegated mainly to the back but with the freedom to weave their installations throughout.

My first thought was that a version of Magic Pony had come to Kensington. There are figurines, a well curated selection of hard-to-find design books and magazines. But Function 13 is more tech bent, thanks to the presence of the new media oriented gallery, The Rich Media Institute (downstairs) and the overriding influence of the team behind FITC.

To find out more, I stopped by the store sometime later to talk to Function 13 Manager Brandon Hocura. Watch the interview and store profile below:
