Today Monday 19th September is the first day of a new show which I was invited to participate in for B&B Italia. The private view is this Thursday 22nd and it runs until the 25th. It marks 10 years of the London branch of the Italian Furniture and Interior design company opening, and the brief was to respond to the landmark of 10 years. I was contacted by Camron PR, who organised the exhibition and represent many Art/Design/Communications companies and events, and was told the event itself would be a part of London Design Week and practicioners such as Zaha Hadid, Barber Osgerby and Tony Chambers from Wallpaper magazine would produce work for it. The exhibition runs from the 19th-25th September and then travels to Milan to be shown again there, before entering into their archives. So the first thing to do was head to the the space and get a feel for the building and interior in South Kensington, which was designed by the architect/designer John Pawson.
All of the exhibitors had to produce an A4 response to the brief 10 years in London. Along side Designers, Ilustrators and Architects were Furniture Designers who had produced a new range of designs for the show.. Below is a section of one of two drawings I submitted and will be hung as part of the show.. Looking forward to the party on Thursday evening.!
