As a continuation of the exhibition “Beasts”, Side Gallery, Apartamento Magazine and Sam Chermayeff Office teamed up to release the second publication of furniture works by the Berlin-based Architect and designer, Sam Chermayeff.
The new publication presents a collection of works named " Beasts", exclusively designed for Side Gallery in the fall of 2021. The book features images, shot on the streets of Barcelona and at Side Gallery’s Barcelona gallery space, by Jeroen Verrecht, an introduction text by architect and editor Jack Self, who dissects his own love for these objects, while curator Alexandra Cunningham Cameron provides an extended interview with Chermayeff on the ideas behind Beasts and the philosophy of his wider design and architecture practice.
The series built primarily from Galvanized steel and mirrored surfaces and is printed on glossy paper with metallic stamping throughout the design index.
