The Twin series of sofas, benches and tables has won the 1994 MMI Prize from The Danish Association of Furniture Designers and Interior Architects. Designed by architects Rud Thygesen and Johnny Soerensen, Twin will be shown at next month’s Spectrum show at the Royal College of Art in London. The jury says Twin `seems at the same time innovative and familiar’ and `presents itself as a harmonious whole’.
The identity for the neighbourhood centres around a graphic “R” logo, which the studio says is designed to “almost disappear” when applied.
The company’s first new logo in 20 years was created by an in-house design team and looks to embrace both physical and digital platforms.
Developed by Vitamin London, the typeface uses letterforms taken from protest posters found at Black Lives Matter demonstrations.
The bottle will be made from sustainably sourced wood, and will debut with the Johnnie Walker whisky brand in 2021.
