Text

21 Twenty One showcases the work and practice of twenty one designers who live and work in Britain in the 21st Century, encompassing disciplines from furniture design to abstract installation. We chose a contemporary typeface for the headers—Raisonne Demibold, designed by Benjamin Critton—and contrasted this with the much older classic British typeface Caslon for the body text. Photographer Petr Krejčí was commissioned to shoot a portrait of each featured designer or studio, to show the people behind the work and provide an insight into their home or work environment. The front cover of the book is an illustration of a detail on a piece of furniture by featured designer Martino Gamper, titled ‘Composizioni Furniture’.1
