Sebastian Errazuriz in London

Book launch and design exhibition at London Design Festival

Posted by Gestalten—09/2012

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
