Services

SoShiro offers a variety of services to connect people to art, others, and enriching experiences. Our main pillars of engagement are through Collaboration, Consultancy, and Space Hire. SoShiro can be both an intelligent resource for inspiration offering fresh thinking and vision from our myriad network of creative talents and techniques from around the world, as well as logistical support with knowledge and experience of what works and what doesn’t.

COLLABORATIONS

One way that we live our purpose is by promoting and facilitating creative Collaborations between distinct cultures and personalities. We are always happy to discuss working together in this way if you are an artist, designer or artisan, or a potential collector or client looking to commission.

We make it our job to find culturally-sensitive ways to breathe new life and contemporary relevance into craft skills passed down the generations, be it in the creation of lifestyle objects and furniture, or in artworks.

We carefully and painstakingly curate the artists, designers and craftspeople who might collaborate together, ensuring open minds and open hearts throughout. Shiro herself will often be central to the process also.

CONSULTANCY

It’s our mission, in wanting to elevate and support the greatest diversity of creatives, to ensure that these challenges don’t dissuade people from engaging and working with these exciting voices.

Having collaborated with myriad artists, designers and craftspeople from all over the world, we understand, and are adept at navigating, the challenges that arise when working with many differing processes, practices, and perspectives.

So at SoShiro, we will do all the hard work for you, alleviating anxiety on every side to make sure the process is smooth and painless for all.

 

GALLERIES | CURATORS

If you are looking to stage a show that requires specific talent and / or work from hard to reach places around the world, we can help you to reach and secure whatever - or whomever - it is you are seeking. If you or one of your clients is hoping to commission a piece of work from, for example, a remote Indigenous community, we can manage the process for you from end-to-end. Whatever your needs, we are here to support you, your team and the artists and their communities.

 

INTERIOR DESIGNERS | ARCHITECTS | PROPERTY DEVELOPERS

We have extensive experience in the worlds of Interior Design and Interior Architecture. We can be both intelligent resource, inspiring you with myriad creative talents and techniques from around the world, and also logistical support as we know what will and won’t work site-specifically.

Intrinsic to every piece we create or facilitate is a sense of positive impact, deep wellbeing and cultural meaning - something we all want to live amongst in our own homes and spaces.

It’s our mission to create a virtuous circle with the work that we do. By re-invigorating, protecting and celebrating art, design and craft from communities across the globe, we can help those communities to thrive.

 

BRANDS

Discerning consumers globally are increasingly seeking out quality over quantity. This stems from a desire to own premium products and also from concern about the environmental and social impact in consuming an abundance of mass-produced goods.

The central difference between ‘quantity’ and ‘quality’ is craft. Impeccable craft is everywhere from fashion to homewares, technology to food, hospitality to automotive. And craft is something we know well at SoShiro. So if your brand is looking to undertake an artistic collaboration, especially one that celebrates craft, we can help.

We can source diverse artists, designers and craftspeople who share your values, aspirations and commitment to quality, and we can oversee the entire process, whether for product, experience, campaign or in-store from idea to execution to installation.

 

ENTERTAINMENT | CREATIVE

At SoShiro we understand the desire by music artists, fashion designers, costume & production designers, creative directors and more to access the breadth of humanity’s creative heritage and skill.

Whether it’s, for example, in consideration of your album campaign’s artwork, or to inspire a new fashion collection or innovative set-design, we can work with you and your team to bring fresh-thinking and craft to the heart of the project.

We can source collaborators to help bring your vision to life in culturally resonant and distinct ways, always sensitive that any collaboration must be mutually beneficial to all involved.

SPACE HIRE

The SoShiro Space is in the heart of London’s Marylebone. This five-storey townhouse hosts SoShiro's permanent collections, guest exhibitions, regular shows and proprietary events.

From bespoke fashion shows to celebrity events, from launch parties to experiential happenings, the central location and layout make it the perfect inclusive, inspirational space for both pop-ups and press, corporate & private events.

With two state of the art kitchens that can cater to both large and small scale parties and an inhouse commitment to ensuring that every detail is considered, SoShiro is the perfect location for your needs.
