From fashion to food every great work of art incorporates some element of storytelling. This video from the folks at Wallpaper* documenting the construction and design of two contrasting apartments is a strong testament to this. Further described as followed…
“On the banks of the River Thames… Wallpaper* has orchestrated a duet of perfectly couter-pointed new pieds-å-terr. One is elegant, airy and formally inventive with a classical rigour and just a touch of the blues, a Gershwin surge; the other a sparing, daring and downright muscular riff on punchy modernism, the Glass act.“
In this video the designers go on to describe the imaginary occupants that helped shape their vision for the two apartments. A technique I am sure most artists can relate too.
