Arts Programme

Following the closure of Londonewcastles original project space in Shoreditch, after a successful eight years, the new and more intimate Gallery 46 has opened in Summer 2016.


We started our Arts Programme because we’re passionate about more than just property. Our aim: to bring London’s creative community and its vacant spaces together, giving new artists a place to showcase their work.

Gallery 46 – Whitechapel

46 Ashfield Street, London, E1 2AJ

Gallery 46 in Whitechapel is our new sister gallery to be used as Londonewcastle Project Space. The new space, established through the partnership of Martin J Tickner and Sean McLusky and Fruitmachine founders, Martin Bell & Wai Hung Young breaks fresh ground for the open-source, non-conformist curatorial approach Tickner and McLusky employed at their (rightly) notorious MEN Gallery, in Shoreditch.Housed in a pair of newly renovated Georgian houses in the grounds of Whitechapel Hospital, GALLERY 46 is set over 3 floors and 8 rooms and is a kaleidoscopic addition to Whitechapel’s burgeoning gallery scene and close by its artistic...

Bar Alto

20 Sep - 25 Sep 2011

For the 2011 London Design Festival, DesignMarketo presents Bar Alto, a new pop up bar, shop and workshop event to take place on Redchurch street during the festival. After the huge success of our previous events during the latest design festivals (London, Milan, Sofia), we will be present again with a new concept for the London Design Festival 2011, and build up on past successes while surprising our audience.

The Commission
Bar Alto will be selling a range of contemporary design objects (specially commissioned for this event), as well as a range of furniture, and working as a cocktail bar! We will commission five designers to customise ten tumblers each, and sell them in Bar Alto during the festival.

The Designers
For Bar Alto, we invited a range of international designers to react to a brief based around the tumbler, as simple glass often used in bars on the Continent. Each designer will customise 20 glasses. Each limited edition will be presented for the first time and for exclusive sale at Bar Alto during the festival, for sure accompanied with a drink!

The Bar
As a direct reference to Milan’s famous Bar Basso (visited by many visitors and designers during the Salone del Mobile), DesignMarketo will offer its London public a variety of specially selected brews and cocktails, including the famous Negroni. We also teamed up with our friend Harry Thaler who, as an established visitor of Bar Basso, will be designing DesignMarketo’s BarAlto! His sensible and intelligent design is the perfect match to bring a warm and friendly atmosphere to Bar Alto! And of course, we have invited Maurizio, the owner of the Bar Basso, who will come and join us for the festivities.

DesignMarketo is a shop and platform (online and on occasions as pop- up shop) selling and promoting a handpicked collection of designer’s products and projects. We started off with a range of designers operating in the London area — mostly in East London — and mostly through personal encounters within our networks. Meanwhile our reputation and experience has grown to include a wider range of designers, and an international clientele.
