Charlie Crowther-Smith and Bristolian Charm

 

If there was a place in Britain you’d associate with eclectic, colourful and bold design, it’d be the weird and wonderful city of Bristol. Just yesterday a young design student created a dress made out of old Daily Mail pages – that says it all.

Charlie Crowther-Smith is no different. His pieces, featuring at Tent London, have a real sense of his city’s native sense of interesting design that while colourful and charming, is still thought-provoking.

The Two Halves Cabinet, pictured above, was made in collaboration with screen printer Christian Taylor. The quirky geometry of the cabinet itself and the ultra-modern and ultra-cool illustration result in a pieces that is almost criminally on vogue.

The C-der Cabinet here has legs based on the ply dinosaurs played with as children, and along with the Ash Coffee Table below injects a burst of bright, shocking colour to contrast the natural grain finishes.
