After carefully selecting them, Scully bought the ideas behind each of the artworks, digital files that came from around the United States, Italy, Dubai, Belgium and the United Kingdom. Later on, and by making the most out of our globalised production system, she produced these designs in iron, and in locations close to the buyers, minimising the environmental impact of production and sale. Emma Scully co-opted and inverted the intricate global system of production by using American industry to create a global scope of design. This way, the process of conceiving the edition itself becomes a commentary on our global consumer society.
The featured designers come from different backgrounds and countries. Artists of the likes of Chen Chen & Kai Williams, Tellurico, Brecht Wright Gander, Charlotte Kingsnorth, Nel Verbeke, Ry Deck, Bradley L Bowers and Faissal El-Malak were behind the pieces’ concepts. Additionally, the Wallpaper Projects studio collaborated on the space design, their Patina Study N1, – based on the rich and textural qualities of patinated metals– is applied on the primary gallery wall, creating an intriguing conversation between the objects and their surrounding environment.
