Beauty and the Beast – Crafts Council

Crafts Council

'Beauty and the Beast' showcased the work of twenty-six emerging Swedish product designers. Lesley Jackson, the curator, identified two opposing sensibilities in the work, and contrasting spaces, characterising 'beauty' and 'beast', were created. The exhibition toured on to Manchester’s Whitworth Gallery. The graphic design was by Kerr|Noble.

"The art of Nick Coombe's design lies in the manipulation of space, allowing works to sit happily beside each other"
