17th-Contemporary - Design

This Island Sunrise

Tue-Sat: 11-6pm

This Island Sunrise celebrates a selected history of improvised British design, bringing together three remarkable thrones of artisanal construction spanning four centuries. Made respectively by the celebrated designer Tom Dixon (b. 1959), pioneering conceptual artist Eduardo Paolozzi (1924- 2005), and an unknown 17th century woodturner, each unique object speaks to the storied narratives of British national identity woven through design and craft.

Presented on the occasion of London Design Festival (16-24 September 2023), the exhibition is curated by Simon Andrews and presented by Sadie Coles HQ at the Bury Street gallery in St James’s.
