Designart and Frieze

Went to DesignArt on wednesday with Corrie. Wasn't expecting much but really loved the exhibition. Good size, well designed, luxurious and spacious. Inspiring objects (some crap obviously!) with hefty price tags. A lot of furniture and I thought that the most successful work was really statement pieces - whats the point of spending £20,000 on something when it could be mistaken for a sideboard from Habitat? Many French galleries, also Adrian Sassoon.

Favourite piece was like this one by Kristin McKirdy on Galerie Pierre Marie Giraud's stand:


Made me think of my idea - clay conscious and then a pool of subconscious in the middle.

Went to Frieze in the evening for the private view. Wasn't inspired by much but we weren't looking properly - it was more entertaining people watching! Only took a photo of these as they were cool!
