Autumn window dressing

Brighton’s Red Design has collaborated with artist and designer Kyle Bean to create an impressive seasonal window display for the city’s Union Jewellery shop

Brighton’s Red Design has collaborated with artist and designer Kyle Bean to create an impressive seasonal window display for the city’s Union Jewellery shop…

Bean, whose installation work for Selfridges was featured on CR blog here, constructed a dress from real leaves for the jewellery shop’s window. Painting the swirling leaves with neon colours made the piece even more eye-catching, in keeping with the studio’s original brief of capturing the spirit of the “party season”.

You can find out more about the project in the making-of film, here:

The set was built in the Red studio before being placed in the Union window. Photography by Ivan Jones. Art Direction by Red Design & Kyle Bean. Video: MadeByStupid.

Union Jewellery is at 2 Union Street, Brighton BN1 1HA. See unionjewellery.com.

As M/M (Paris), Michaël Amzalag and Mathias Augustyniak changed the face of French graphic design. As they celebrate their 20th anniversary, a major new monograph compiles the pair’s distinctive work. Is what they do design? Is it illustration? Or has M/M gone beyond such labels?
