Designers Rocky Alvarez, Carl Clerkin, Gitta Gshwendtner, Michael Marriott and Will Warren have created specially made exhibits for the exhibition Cupboard Love. Each designer was asked to create a visual response to the Victorian expression with the result being a collection of cabinets, boxes and buckets. Gschwendtner’s work (pictured) is billed as signifying ‘the way objects change with time and use’, and illustrates a chest of drawers changing over time as the owner stores items between its segments. The exhibition, which also features a window installation by textile designer Lisa Stickley, runs from 7 February to 26 April at the Applied Arts Agency in London.
The project, which centres around an updated “WB” shield, aims to lay the groundwork for the company’s future ahead of its centenary in 2023.
The updated international logo is a “true reflection of the Dutch mentality” and is central to a brand strategy based around openness, inventiveness and inclusivity.
The redesign aims to attract “new, younger and more culturally diverse audiences” to the 118-year-old magazine, while avoiding confusion with The Times newspaper.
