DANAD Design - The Art of Pop Design (1958-1962) at Paul Smith Gallery (4)

Danad Designs at Paul Smith Store in Mayfair

Congratulation to Mark Daniels and Ros Weaver of Danad Designs for their remarkable exhibiton at the Paul Smith store in Mayfair celebrating the 60th anniversary by by Peter Blake, Bernard Cohen, Tom Adams, Barry Daniels, Robyn Denny & Edward Wright.

The group lived, hung out and worked in the dilapidated Georgian splendour of Marden Hill House, which became a cultural hub and country retreat for their friends. The house was a perfect party venue where in the revolutionary 1960s artists, designers and musicians mingled with high society. Mick Jagger, Jimmy Hendrix, Donovan were guests, as were Ted Hughes and Sylvia Plath as well as tastemakers Ossie Clark and Terence Conran.

The show celebrated the forgotten story of a group of young artists of the pop-art era. Taking the original DANAD Design show in 1960 as inspiration, this world-class exhibition included unseen archival material of original paintings, prints and other ephemera from the design collective. An exclusive relaunched collection of original DANAD furniture using our Digital Print laminate is now available for purchase.
