Sebastian Errazuriz in London
Book launch and design exhibition at London Design Festival
Alongside the launch of The Journey of Sebastian Errazuriz at this year’s London Design Festival, Sebastian Errazuriz will be unveiling a selection of exceptional hand-made models, drawings, and blueprints behind some of his most iconic pieces.
Each wood model is crafted with a level of detail and obsession that surpasses any possible functional requirement as a maquette and becomes instead a miniature sculpture that captures the intimacy and poetry behind each one of Sebastian’s life-size functional pieces.
Together with these exquisite small-scale studies Errazuriz will also present his finalized full size version of the “Boat Coffin” and a new version of the “Body of Work” coffee table photographed as if he had just passed away. The designer hopes to transform the exhibition into a sort of funeral or wake in which his monograph launch marks the end of a decade of work and the start of a new one.
Opening: September 19th, 19:00-23:00
