Selfridges Installation

Alongside other artists and designers, including David Chipperfield, Hervé Léger, and Paul Smith, we were invited to customise a chair that would become part of an installation hanging in the atrium of Selfridges, London

Each artist was given the same white, Ernest Race chair. The first thing we did was to spray the uprights bright blue

We took a standard nylon motorbike cover and screen-printed blocked shapes in blue and red

Cargo nets were stretched into place and hooked down to hold the printed fabric beneath

The newly upholstered surface mixes found materials and spontaneously balanced textures. A Mad Max aesthetic with a Selfridges sheen

We called the project 'Reupholstered'
