Design For Living is the first exhibition at Initial Access, and presents a selection of new works from the Frank Cohen Collection. The exhibition focuses on art that responds to architecture or the qualities that architecture requires, such as design and structure. These works are juxtaposed with examples of contemporary furniture design, to explore their interrelationships, and shared concerns and aesthetics.
Design for Living includes more than 20 works, previously unseen in the UK, by internationally important and emerging artists and designers : Tobias Rehberger, Zaha Hadid, Nathaniel Mellors, Ronan and Erwan Bouroullec, Fernando and Humberto Campana, Dexter Dalwood, Michael Elmgreen and Ingar Dragset, Sabine Hornig, Roger Kelly, Martin Kobe, Masakatsu Kondo, Ross Lovegrove, Nathaniel Mellors, Ian Monroe, Manfred Pernice, Carol Rhodes, Thomas Scheibitz.
