The reputation of Swiss architect and designer Pierre Jeanneret (1896-1967) is often overshadowed by that of his cousin and long-time collaborator Le Corbusier. The two had an architectural practice together for twenty years, only parting ways when, during the Second World War, Pierre joined the French resistance and Le Corb did not. Jeanneret was a strong advocate of functional modernism within his designs and this aesthetic was fully realised throughout the body of work for which he is most renowned – designing the architecture for the Indian city of Chandigarh.

This is Acne Paper Magazine Issue 15, ‘The Actress’, 2014, featuring Isabelle Huppert as Greta Garbo on the cover. Each issue of Acne Paper was created around one key idea – a timeless theme that in various ways touches all those working in the creative fields regardless of age, cultural background or social status. In an eclectic yet coherent mix of portrait, fashion and art photography as well as interviews, memoirs and prose the editorial narrative aims to unite artistic minds of all generations. It pays tribute to past luminaries whilst still keeping a firm grip on the present, evoking something timeless, something nostalgic yet refreshingly modern. By moving effortlessly between high and popular culture Acne Paper was a glamorous and intelligent magazine celebrating personality, authenticity and style. Acne Paper was bi-annual culture magazine and the publishing arm of the Stockholm-based creative collective and fashion label Acne which stopped being produced in 2014. This magazine measures 28cm x 37cm and is in perfect condition with very light wear.
Ceramicist Romy Northover has collaborated with Alex Eagle to create a meaningful design. A collection of sounds and textures builds a starting point for Northover and this is subtly displayed in the pinched clear water glasses. Using the Japanese techniques of Kinuneri, Tebineri and Rokuro has allowed Northover to form a connection to ancient, primitive arts and modernist forms - all apparent in the glass. As a modern form, the glass is blown by hand in New York meaning dimensions may vary slightly. The transparent glass has a single indention which makes the glass comfortable to hold and features a weighty base for sturdiness, perfect for savouring stronger drinks. This cup measures 10 x 9cm. This item is delicate and should be handled with care. It should be washed by hand. Dishwashers, ovens, microwaves and scrubbing should be avoided.
