TEFAF, 2015: we are on our way

Creating stands for art fairs never loses its appeal.  Each March, by the time ‘Maastricht’ comes around, we will have spent the previous twelve months or more gathering together a group of fresh objects that we can present in a coherent display.

The design process invariably begins on a scrap of paper (see above), before being drawn up, more or less to scale, to ensure that optimism does not tempt us into taking pieces that will not sit harmoniously together.  This year, we are fortunate to have work by leading designers from the nineteenth and twentieth centuries, including Pugin, Burges, Godwin, Jeckyll, Dresser, Voysey, Waals and Aalto.

Everything is, as I write, being crated and wrapped (see below).  Over the weekend we will be cocooned in the MECC unpacking, arranging and lighting.  An update will follow.

TEFAF opens on 13th March (with the private preview on 12th), and runs through to the end of Sunday 22nd.  If you are able to visit and do not have tickets, please let us know.
