An iconic name behind this of course, but the 1950s Erno Goldfinger-designed modernist apartment in Primrose Hill, London NW1 is also desirable because of its originality, its grade II-listing and the fact that apartments in this building rarely come up for sale. Very special.
Another addition to Dorothy's great Lost Destination range of prints: this one celebrating the Trellick Tower.
We saw the two collaborate on some Bus Blind fabric earlier in the year, but we haven't previously encountered Trellick With Margo Selby bag range at People Will Always Need Plates.
As the name suggests, the range is inspired by the facade of Goldfinger's iconic Trellick Tower, with a choice of colours and designs – a blowing bag, pencil case/make-up bag, purse, washbag and weekender bag. Oh yesa, there are also cushions too, which obviously aren't bags, but we'll not quibble over the detail.
The bowling bag is available in two colour options and sized at 35 x 23cm, with leather contrasting the Trellick cloth. £160 is the price for this, see the rest of the range on the website.
We usually feature huge art deco, midcentury or modernist architectural masterpieces on these pages, great to look at, but pretty much always unaffordable to all of us. Well, here is a semi-detached house that's firmly in the 'affordable' bracket for more of us – but it's also an Erno Goldfinger-designed Wellesley House property in Broadstairs, Kent.
In truth, the designer and the history of the house are actually more interesting than the property, but just think…you can tell the world your home was designed by a modernist legend. How cool would that be?
The 1956 This is Tomorrow exhibition, held at London's Whitechapel Gallery, is widely regarded as one of the seminal exhibitions in British art of the second half of the twentieth century, arguably heralding the start of the British Pop Art scene. To accompany a display looking at the exhibition, the Whitechapel are printing a facsimile of the original catalogue.
That's 132 pages, including 100 black and white images, looking at the work artists, architects and theorists produced for the exhibition. The long role call includes such name as Eduardo Paolozzi, Erno Goldfinger, Lawrence Alloway and Richard Hamilton who exhibited his famous 'Just what is it that makes today's homes so different, so appealing?' collage in the show. The only difference between that and the original is a two page insert from the current director and the archive curator of the Whitechapel.
