Juergen Teller and Jack Pierson artworks turned into pillows by Henzel Studio
Rest your head on contemporary art
The progressive luxury rug brand, Henzel Studio, has teamed up with a distinguished handful of contemporary artists to create a collaborative presentation of limited-edition art pillows, for Barneys department store and Colette Paris. The artists involved include; assume vivid astro focus, Scott Campbell, Robert Knoke, Nan Goldin, Jack Pierson, Anselm Reyle and Juergen Teller as well as Tom of Finland, designed with Tom of Finland Foundation in Los Angeles.
Each of the celebrated talents were given the artistic freedom to produce a number designs in the medium through which they saw fit, be it painting, drawing, photography or montage, to be translated into the fabric of a pillow covering.
Anselm Reyle chose to expand on his celebrated foil paintings, which thrive on being reproduced. The art collective, assume vivid astro focus, created a series of artworks titled 'Butt Pillows' as a creative off shoot from their 2013 exhibition in São Paulo, which was a visual commentary on the reckless real estate development taking place in the city. Juergen Teller selected photographs he took of floor-to-ceiling wall montages representing his body of work, which once translated onto the pillows have a dynamic collage effect. Other designs include, the subversive thorny rose illustrations from Scott Campbell and Jack Pierson's bright designs that exude sunlight.
