Illusion | KENJIRO HARIGAI
Lladró, a brand fostering design and creativity, is proud to share with us the report published by NEO2, a magazine with 15 years to its credit at the forefront of design in Spain and sold in major cities around the world., using their creations as the centerpieces for the project.
This influential lifestyles and design magazine organized a virtual workshop with Lladró pieces, choosing four of the world’s hottest creative studios and asking them to come up with their own view of some of our porcelains. The goal consisted of creating surprising new perspectives in photography on classic Lladró pieces.
The studios selected for the report were FromKeetra (USA), Pierre Vanni (France), Oscar & Ewan (UK) and Kenjiro Harigai (Japan), and the pieces they worked with are My Fair Lady, In touch with Nature, Happy Anniversary and Illusion, respectively.
MY FAIR LADY | FROMKEETRA
Keetra Dean Dixon, director of FromKeetra studio in New York, is a young creative who defines herself as a designer and an artist. Her work has brought giants like Nike, Coca Cola, The New York Times and Sony knocking at her door. Strongly influenced by the surreal and the absurd, her creations are the result of a multidisciplinary approach, using all sorts of techniques, yet always in the most exquisite manner. Collage, photography, typography and illustration are some of her customary ingredients.

IN TOUCH WITH NATURE | PIERRE VANNI
The extremely young French designer Pierre Vanni works for the Centre Pompidou in Paris, for Nike and for The New York Times Style Magazine. His golden rule is “in the opaque digital world we live in, things don’t happen for what they are, but for what they look like.” In his personal vision of the piece In touch with Nature, Vanni has applied an element recurrent in a large part of his work: handmade polygons created using software for children. From digital image to tactile form.

HAPPY ANNIVERSARY | OSCAR & EWAN
Founded in 2007, this London-based studio is made up by Oscar from Sweden and Ewan from Scotland, who explore various fields of design, from book and album covers to furniture design and art installations. For Oscar & Ewan, addressing a previously unknown concept only increases the interest of the creative process.

ILLUSION | KENJIRO HARIGAI
This acclaimed Japanese designer founded the Adapter studio in 2003. Since them, he has been working on projects ranging from graphic and editorial design, web management or TV advertising, to directing music videos. Harigai has a powerfully graphic view he applies to all his works, practicing a range of styles from punk aesthetics to 3D, but always removed from a minimal vocabulary. (first image of the post)
