The latest round of limited-edition design art launched to a fanfare last night at a glitzy reception in London hosted by UK furniture manufacturer Established & Sons.
The exhibition – Around the Corner – opens to the public today at Established & Son’s Duke Street gallery, in Piccadilly, London W1.
Designer and architect Amanda Levete, who created the Design Week award-winning Drift Bench, has created four limited-edition pieces for the UK manufacturer, based on idea of lost space within the corners of a room.
According to Established & Sons, the series is about the ‘spatial relationship between the corner and the object’, with initial forms derived from a complex three-dimensional formula, first manipulated digitally and then by hand, to create the pieces.
Levete has attempted to show how the perception of form changes, as well as expressing the particular qualities of each piece through the use of different materials.
The series features a console, shelves, seating and a table.
All pieces are expected to follow Levete’s previous track record and sell for five-figure sums.
Established & Sons declines to comment, saying that the price is only available to prospective buyers.
