The final illustration by morph for one of the pieces by Peter (Saville) & Anna (Blessman), which we assited to develop for their show at the FRAC.
"Under the name of Anna + Peter, German artist Anna Blessmann and legendary British designer Peter Saville present their first exhibition at the FRAC Champagne-Ardenne"
Swing Project 1 represents a unique collaboration between the artist and the designer, appealing simultaneously to the ideas, influences and skills of each. Through this project, Peter Saville, like an analyst and a decoder, proffers his observations on today's society in general, and most notably, his vision of visual culture. Anna Blessmann, on the other hand, brings us all of its physicality, sensitivity and sensuality.
Swing Project 1 begins from the observation that in a world where all ar-tistic disciplines are now so intrinsically linked that they blend together, contemporary art must now be approached as a philosophy of society and no longer in relation to the idea of form. The exhibition of Anna + Peter is conceived as a sort of 'mood board'. It introduces the following proposal: it is through exchange - and not through the object - that it is possible to experience the actual world and imagine other possibilities. Through this exhibition, Anna + Peter develop a sharp critique of postmodernist tactics that have led to the creation of a world wholly dedicated to consumption and communication, wherein the hybridity of forms matches their uselessness. Now, as they rightly remind us, "nothing useless can be truly beautiful".

“Double Dish provides the perfect solution to the problem of serving snacks such as olives and pistachio nuts, with their inedible stones and shells. Its unique design comprises of a serving dish sitting on top of a larger collection bowl, curved outwards in three places to allow the disposal of unsightly food waste. As well as
hiding any waste from view, Double Dish eliminates the need for additional empty bowls on the table. Made from 100% melamine, the two bowls can also be used separately for serving other snacks.”

“The simple, striking design of this mortar and pestle provides not one, but two receptacles for grinding herbs and spices. The main bowl is large enough for crushing and grinding large quantities, or even several ingredients at once. The lid, when inverted, provides a neat handheld mortar - ideal for smaller amounts of herbs and spices. Made from non-absorbent vitrified porcelain.”

Our take on the potato masher for the J-me (Jamie Oliver) brand, which has a stainless steel mesh and a sturdy handle.
15 x 13 x 7cm
This is a refresh of the traditional "Speed Peeler" design which we did for the J-me (Jamie Oliver) brand. This example has a thicker and more robust stainless steel frame, to help prevent the blade from popping out unwantedly.
