Adidas Originals, Selfridges Point of Sale

Here at CR we’ve always been fans of the iconic, classic Adidas blue shoebox, so imagine our delight when we found out that the Offspring store at Selfridges Oxford Street will soon be boasting a giant-size version

True North was asked to create an eye-catching, bespoke display system for the store and so employed an outsize Adidas shoebox for a table, while lids were transformed into matching chairs. Two purposes were served says True North creative director Alan Herron: “Firstly, a display and ‘trying on’ area was created and, secondly, the brand is given high standout in the near-chaotic visual environment of a busy department store.”

Andrei Tarkovsky: Film and Painting

Over a 25 year period, Russian filmmaker Andrei Tarkovsky made just seven feature films and three student shorts, yet his cinematic work stands out as one of the most significant contributions to moving image history. In films such as Solaris, Mirror and Andrei Rublev, Tarkovsky dealt thematically with the notion of memory, childhood and dreams and became a master of the long, unedited shot and distinct formalistic approach to filmmaking. Many studies of his work have also observed the links between his films and the visual arts. Black Dog Publishing is behind a new, comprehensive volume dedicated to his life’s work and we have an exclusive extract to present here on the CR blog. The following essay, by Mikhail Romadin (the art director on Solaris), looks at the relationship between Tarkovsky’s films and painting.
