I came upon this otherwise non-descript furniture store near New Cross and Goldsmiths College proudly advertising a famous client, artist Damien Hirst known for suspending mummified sharks in tanks and encrusting skulls with diamonds.  The store itself sells old, marginally operational, office furniture but, by tapping into the aura of a famous artist, the objects are charged with a form of ‘artistic’ potential energy.  Hirst was able to release it and maybe we can find it too in a squeaky 60’s burnt orange office chair.
