Dean Brown is a designer in London who has been a resident at Fabrica in Italy. He’s been exhibited at the Milan Furniture Fair, the London Design Festival and the V&A Design Museum in London. He states that his work is born of an interest in “concept retail, narrative driven installations and cultural artifacts.”
Brown exhibited in June at The Grand Paris Design Festival, in collaboration with Sèvres – Cité de la Céramique. Brown’s project A Matter of Colour presents white vases with glaze, but the glaze is denied at the crucial moment, hovering just inches away from the vase’s surface.
From the festival:
“Conceived as a spatial installation and 15 unique pieces, white porcelain and vibrant pigments collide celebrating the thought-provoking space between raw colour and a Vase as a blank canvas. London based Designer Dean Brown interprets the Manufacture Nationale de Sèvres, inspired by the opposite ends of the porcelain making process. The viewer is placed in a state of imagining between the object and the unapplied colour, evoking different moods and ways of seeing for each individual.”
