Playdate Office at Peckham Levels

Playdate Office is a multi-disciplinary design practice with a particular interest in creating accessible and intuitive information experiences.

We explore ways of embedding information in everyday life as physical objects through a rigorous inquiry of materials and the environment. Founded in 2016, we have won commissions at the V&A, Peckham Festival, and featured in the London Design Festival 2017.

The Story

Our partnership formally started when we won a commission from the first Peckham Festival in 2016Called Peckham Patternscape, we designed, produced and successfully exhibited the work at three locations on Rye Lane for the duration of the festival. We showcased our second project, Photosynthesis : Air, Light, Water and Marbles at Eastern Biological in Hackney Road as part of the London Design Festival 2017. Our latest project, Connectivity Algorithm, was commissioned by the V&A for Friday Late in January 2017.

The People

Playdate office consists of graphic designer Myah and architectural designer Boyeon. Both originally from Korea, Myah and Boyeon work in close collaboration exploring 2 + 3 dimensions.

Why Peckham?

Peckham means a lot to us! It’s where we started our first project. We are looking forward to producing many more! Peckham Levels is attractive to us in many ways; having an office in a stimulating environment where we could work and have meetings with clients, working in a space where we can have access to metal and wood workshops etc. would be greatly beneficial to us. Being able to produce prototypes for projects within an accessible environment will improve our ability to deliver more substantial projects.

Following the government’s latest advice on COVID19, it is with a heavy heart that in addition to fully closing our doors to the public, your local food traders will now be ceasing all food deliveries until further notice.

This is a difficult time for many, including our project and the 162 small, independent & incredible businesses who call Peckham Levels home. We will be looking at ways in which we can continue to give them the platform they need during this uncertain period. By following us on our socials or signing up to our newsletter, we can collectively look at ways to support Members and local traders.

We will provide updates as soon as we can.

Much love,

Peckham Levels Team x
