A scarce example from the height of 1980s design, this exhibition catalog from the Galerie Projects show in 1987 features three of the most cutting-edge British designers of the period: Peter Saville, Lovegrove and Brown, and Peter Keene.
Lovegrove and Brown formed in 1986, focusing on innovative furniture and interior design. Peter Saville Associates formed at the height of 1970’s New Wave, authoring the visual vocabularies of Factory Records and New Order. Throughout the 1980’s the studio worked in an amorphous area between fashion, fine
art, and popular music. Peter Keene created dynamic designs that were sleekly modern, raw, and informed by assemblage, sculpture and industrial design. Together the three studios put on a show in Paris in 1987, resulting in this superb showcase of their sleek, crisp aesthetic.
