Roy G. Biv. He's got two lives down and five to give. Roy G. Biv. He's just a bright white light filtered through a sieve. - The Ballad of Roy G. Biv by Zapruder Point. Lyrics by Greg Crowther
This Summer Gallery Libby Sellers is pleased to present a kaleidoscopic selection of contemporary and specially commissioned works by designers including Anton Alvarez, Stuart Haygarth, Peter Marigold, Ryuji Nakamura and Paola Petrobelli.
Many of the works were first presented in Design Miami/Basel 2013 and have now been brought together to challenge expectations of colour in the domestic setting. Amongst the works will be exclusive pieces from Anton Alvarez’s Thread Wrapping Machine series, which have been conceived as a sculptural installation – with each stool or bench coming together to form a singular vivid form.
Peter Marigold’s Wooden series of cast furniture designs and the recently launched 24 series of glass lights by Paola Petrobelli will also be on display. Julie Richoz, winner of the 2012 Design Parade award at Villa Noailles in Hyères, has produced a small edition of her beautifully refined kinetic paper study Armand and to compliment this the gallery will present Ryuji Nakamura’s Water Lily bench made from hundreds of hand-coloured metal rods which have been meticulously welded together to form an architectural grid. And finally, Stuart Haygarth’s majestic Tail Light chandelier, first presented through the gallery in 2007, has been reworked by the designer into a handsome table-top version of the light.
