We were invited by Swire Island East of Swire Properties to design seating furniture for the Vivienne Westwood – A Life in Fashion exhibition that they are organizing with the designer. From wooden box seats emblazoned with evocative statements, to modern, sleek furniture, these works are influenced by various themes in Westwood’s works. The various materials used – wood, steel, wire, wool and fabrics – are redolent of the eclectic nature of her work. The exhibition was held from 1 Dec 2008 to 31 Jan 2009.
