twentytwentyone present The Wrong Shop Editions with prints by Ronan and Erwan Bouroullec and Pierre Charpin

The print series is to be produced by The Wrong Shop and initiate a unique collaboration to offer previously unseen works by the designers. The hand-drawn sketches and designs are an insight into their highly successful and influential design practices. The prints reveal core elements in the creativity of the designers and act as a new medium to understand and enjoy their work.

For the first time drawings from the individual collections of Ronan and Erwan Bouroullec will be produced in series as prints. The original works formed part of recent exhibitions and Vitra Design Museum and Centre Pompidou Metz. The Bouroullec prints will be mounted in custom-designed frames or available unframed.

Pierre Charpin’s Loop series will be offered in bleached Lime box frames, or unframed.

Each print is signed and numbered and launched at a fixed price, eliminating the price increases often associated with limited editions in the art market.

“I am interested in producing new works representing the creative expressions by designers who are known for their 3-dimensional designs. These prints are strong graphic statements that stand independently on their own merit” says Sebastian Wrong.

The collection will be launched at twentytwentyone who will act as The Wrong Shop’s exclusive retail partner. The Wrongshop Editions will be launched online from midnight 19th September 2012. The collection will be available to buy framed or unframed.

Ronan and Erwan Bouroullec

“The drawings of the Bouroullec brothers are works of independent artistic value, whose tender, often crosshatched and at times almost naïve-seeming pictorial motifs create their own unique world of forms. They act as important steps within the design process to gradually move toward the ultimate proposal of a new object. The designers proceed like natural scientists who investigate and continually retest the forms of their own array of ideas with a spirit of curiosity.”
-Mateo Kries, Director of Vitra Design Museum

Pierre Charpin

“Drawing is the point of departure for all my design projects, but I have always believed that it can also be an end in itself–something I call ‘drawing for drawing.’ I attach great importance to this practice because it is the link to my visual arts background and education. It is also the only time, as a designer, when I assume complete responsibility from the beginning to the end of the process.

For the Loop series, produced and edited by The Wrong Shop, the original felt-tip pen drawings were converted using a basic vectorial program then screenprinted, or digitally printed. These ‘translated’ drawings possess a quality and a specificity of their own and while their interpretation remains close to the original they become new and different objects in themselves.”
-Pierre Charpin
