London Design Festival 2013: new studio Brose~Fogale has launched a valet stand, dresser and set of mirrors, which were installed in an east London boutique last week (+ slideshow).
Brose~Fogale's Camerino Collection includes a valet stand that balances on a horizontal bar and props up against the wall.
Clothing can hang from poles that stick out from the central stem.
It also has two shelves for shoes or accessories in front and a circular mirror to one side near the top.
The dresser has legs at each end that match a circular copper-tinted mirror, which sits atop a third stand protruding through the surface of the table.
The mirror is also available in a hand-held version, shaped like a table tennis bat with a wooden handle, or as a tabletop model with a small tray at its base.
Separate trays for loose change and other small objects also feature in the range, as well as angled coat pegs with rounded ends.
All are available in natural wood or painted in bright colours.
For the festival the studio installed its range in Shoreditch boutique Start London, with furniture placed in the window and around the store.
Aiming to emulate an artist's dressing room, the pieces were populated with Start's garments and accessories.
Other product collections launched during London Design Festival include Noble & Wood's debut collection of crafted furniture, plus concave bookcases and chairs with hotdog-shaped legs by Joined + Jointed.
Here's some more information from the designers about the installation:
The Artist’s Dressing Room
Start London joins forces with up and coming design studio, Brose~Fogale to celebrate the London Design Festival 2013.
Brose~Fogale, a partnership between designers Matteo Fogale and Joscha Brose will take over Start's store windows from 14 to 22 September, showcasing their new Camerino Collection and reinterpreting the idea of an artist's dressing room with their modern, contemporary furniture.
The installation is titled "The Artist's Dressing Room", which translates to Camerino in Spanish and Italian. Kate Moss before a fashion show, Marilyn Monroe preparing for her next hollywood shoot - the name instantly evokes images of glamour and excitement. It is this special place, and the five minutes before the curtain gets lifted that are magical, full of concentration, excitement and glamour.
Brose~Fogale, through their inspiring and original display will be recreating this scene in the Start Womenswear boutique located at 42 - 44 Rivington Street, and allowing the public to catch a glimpse of this intimate and never before seen moment.
