Loved clambering around the Royal Academy’s ‘Sensing Spaces’ exhibition? Well, here’s your chance to take a part of the show home with you. The Great Architecture online fair features momentos of the exhibits, starting at £10 for a bag of pebbles from Li Xiaodong’s installation (above). Yep, you read that right – a tenner for a bag of stones, albeit particularly aesthetically pleasing ones. There are nice Pezo von Ellrichshausen wooden stools for £150 or if you’re feeling flush, you could blow £2,500 on a Diébédo Francis Kéré chaise longue (below). As we said, you’d probably have to realllly have loved the show to invest in part of it, but we reckon there’ll be some die hard fans out there who will jump at the chance to own a souvenir.

They’re giving 10% off to Time Out readers so just enter TO10 if you buy something at royalacademy.org.uk.


The fair finishes April 7 at midnight.
