Is there anything better than Dutch design? Well perhaps the Swiss and Dutch are top contenders for International design extrodinaire’s here at WB, but let’s just say those two can show us how its ALL done. The latest project from Swiss designer Philippe Karrer only reaffirms such perspective, collaborating with one of Europe’s finest contemporary artists’; Dutch photographer Melanie Bonajo, a dream match.
“The publication Spheres is the creative documentation of a close collaboration between an artist and the editor, graphic designer Philippe Karrer. Every issue is dedicated to a young artist and their work, in each case exploring character, surroundings, everyday life, inspirations and ideas using conventional innovative formats so as to create a different, more visual approach and understanding of the artist and his or her work. The focus lies on what is important to the artist during the time period of working together for the publication, hereby capturing a certain essence of the artist’s work at the moment.”
