We’ve been working this year with curators Mariah Nielson and Fanny Singer on the identity and packaging for Permanent Collection, their new line of women’s clothing, accessories and objects. Permanent Collection is inspired by the approach to acquisition taken by museums of international renown, and presents a range of elegant, minimal and versatile products based on historical designs.
Alongside their first collections, Mariah and Fanny have also produced a printed art journal called Works on Paper, which we designed. It offers them the opportunity to commission writing and criticism on the subject of both art and design—for this first issue, they asked contributors to consider the theme of collecting and collections.
Permanent Collection is holding a special launch this weekend at Spree in Paris. Coincidentally, the venue’s beautiful Le Corbusier facade bears more than a passing resemblance to the debossed type on the cover of Works on Paper issue 1!
