    Carefully curating a selection of finely crafted design pieces, 19 Greek street‘s new exhibition ‘L’Appartement du Progres’ showcases conscious, charitable and sustainable design – not that you’d ever know it - altruistic they may be, but each piece is beautiful, stylish, and equally at home at 19 Greek Street as any other high-end design piece. The exhibition brings together up-cycled chairs by Nina Tolstrup, pieces from Marni’s 100 chairs made through a charity program for columbian ex-convicts, pieces by UK charity Out of the Dark, cabinets made from recycled newspaper by VIJ5 and sustainable pieces by Dian Simpson.

    Rothko in Britain at The Whitechapel Gallery

    by  • January 23, 2012 • Life.Style.etc Loves • 0 Comments

    Popped in to East London’s Whitechapel Gallery yesterday and was truly inspired by the small but fascinating Rothko in Britain exhibition. The Abstract Expressionist’s work was first seen in the UK at The Whitechapel in 1961, and to mark the 50th anniversary of the landmark occasion, a  set of archive photographs capturing the reactions of attendees at the time is on display, alongside various letters and instructions from  Rothko.

    I love the way the images capture a fascinating period when society was about to go psychedelic, yet World War II was still part of living memory.  I couldn’t help dwelling on who these people were, and what they thought of the work…

    Duffel coat. Check. Stovepipes. Check. Nerdy specs. Natch. No doubt these intellectual chaps went on to analyse the art in a Soho coffee shop…

    Wonder what these women, who I like to think were called Doris and Ethel, made of Light Red Over Black?

    Amazing to think Marjorie and her cronies on the right lived through the Blitz, while the bearded Beatnik on the left might still be a working as a City fat cat or a human rights campaigner. You decide.

    The little boy would be middle-aged now. I hope he’s still passionate about art.

    The free exhibition continues until February 26.
