Jens Risom furniture at Rocket Gallery
It's not often you go shopping for furniture in an an art gallery, but here's your chance.
Established in London's fashionable Shoreditch for the past 15 years Rocket Gallery is renowned for merging the lines between art and design with exhibitions that have a distinctly minimalist aesthetic. Although don't let that put you off.
Showing something in a gallery gives the object a reverence not found on the average shop floor. It says, here is something special and it deserves to be admired. But this context can feel a bit sterile. So try to imagine this furniture in a home - add newspapers, coffee cups... people.
Risom's designs are not just objects of beauty (or art) they are useful, practical, elegant and comfortable. Not everything stands up to the glare of gallery lights, but I think these pieces do.
