Nocturne Inspirations: Free London Exhibitions in April

Nocturne Inspirations: Free London Exhibitions in April

London is a constant source of inspiration for the Nocturne design team, from the variety of culture and events to everyday architecture and design that make the city such an exciting base. The latest round of free exhibitions demonstrate society's increasing interest in self-care and mindfulness, using space and multi-sensory experience to create immersive installations that allow room to reflect and recharge. 

Sense of Space exhibition in Broadgate, Liverpool Street, is made up of four rooms designed to engage the senses and offer a respite from the hustle and bustle of the city. The room inspired by Asian cherry blossom, created by London-based floral display team Early Hours, is arguably the main attraction, but beyond the obvious Instagram photo ops, the space is enjoyable in itself with ambient music and softly-changing lighting creating a calming environment.  

Another exhibition exploring art's effect on wellbeing is Harmonics in Space by Fred Butler at NOW Gallery, on until the end of April. Butler's abstract, colourful style for fashion accessories and props has made her a major name in London design, but here she turns her talents to interior installation. 

The resulting space is filled with vibrant geometric shapes exploring chromotherapy and light as an antidote to SAD. The experience is paired with a soundtrack created by Natureboy, and you're invited to use the space creatively with origami paper available.

With increasing over-stimulation from social media and constantly being glued to a screen, it's important to take time to recharge and be in the moment. Being able to do so in playful surroundings that inspire your creativity is an added bonus!
