This weekend Method Furniture will be premiering the METHOD x DENHAM “JOURNEYMAN” (a Steamer Trunk for a Jeanmaker) at the 100% Design Exhibition in Earls Court in London September 22-25.

How we got there? Way back before we had a real website (all of two-and-a-half years ago) we blogspotted about our Made in England denim and leather bags.  In that early posting we rhapsodized about the ingenuity of early luggage design with descriptions of Louis Vuitton’s pioneering innovations.  Flash forward to the present day and we’re now proud that our own modest approach to modern utility design caught the attention of the fledgling luxury furniture maker, Method Design in Scotland.

The respect between the design team at Denham and the team at Method was mutual from the onset.  We rant on and on about “worshipping tradition while destroying convention” while Callum Robinson and Marisa Giannasi had been busy crafting their own design concept based on exactly the same creative ethos.  Honestly we didn’t contribute that much to the project beyond cheering Callum and Marisa on from the sidelines as they undertook some 300+ hours of pure craft creation to realize our combined vision.  The result speaks for itself.

Stop by and see it along with their other sublime work if you’re in the neighborhood. If not, have a look for the movie and more details on the trunk at our website.

'Cut the Breeze' t-shirt

Last Friday we celebrated the launch of our 2nd House Guest Artist in the Denham Store in Amsterdam.

After having a local hero, Alljan Moehamad, for the first project, the 2nd in our series of guest artists welcomes STB Tees into the Denham House: a stand alone project by jakenoakes, who traditionally specialises in printed media (mainly books and magazines) often creating limited edition, bespoke publications.

Most recently jakenoakes designed Bill Gold: PosterWorks, the first limited-edition publication for luxury publishing house Reel Art Press (available through reelartpress.com) and co-created a live interactive stage show for Groove Armada.

The DENHAM geometric scissor design has a timeless yet contemporary appeal and was inspired by the works of Sol LeWitt.

Oh Jenny…

Pixel and texture are the main aspects of the image. Rather than use purely digital artwork, I have been quietly trying new methods of creating texture. My focus is on the decay of beauty, as in, the fall of the ego as we are stretched apart in all directions by our ever increasing surroundings of illusion. Seeing things for what they really are by means of moving out of focus with these surroundings and to seek internally, let that guiding light shine forth.

I am seeking to make a transition in art. Forming a breakdown of parts and leaving blank space or thought in its place intrigues me. The balance for me would be to show growth / decay within the ‘inbetween’ phase of an image where they would both merge before the finished article becomes neither one or the other. Question also what you are looking at and by what medium or media? Question everything.

By following other artists it gets easier in time to interpret messages that they put forth. This in turn holds a certain resonance, something that on some level one can relate to.

We continue to learn at the drawing of each breath. I remain thankful to my peers. KDU for Life!

Hopped over to Auckland a few weeks ago to speak at the We Can Create conference along side some heros like Frank Kozik and Eike Keonig from Hort (among a slew of others). It was my first large event talk, so a fantastic trial by fire experience. Below is a post-lecture interview.

I’ve also started a new personal series of 100 Girls for my next and ongoing project. Six of the new pieces debuted in a show in Auckland. Here’s part of the drawing process for number 6, shot by Marius Crowne for part of an upcoming TV segment.

SVSV continues to use art as a vehicle to expand and communicate its anti-mass agenda. This week, we debut three artistic collaborations designed to amplify the core craft philosophy that defines our brand. Our brand believes that the ideas we generate share equal weight with the objects we create. Art is the bridge that connects these two realities.
