Aitor Throup – ‘New Object Research’ Installation & Collection – Dover Street Market – London

We headed over to Dover Street Market recently to take a look at the stores latest project with designer Aitor Throup. Two strands make up ‘New Object Research’. Firstly a series of black mesh sculptures placed around the space and secondly 4 pieces or ‘Archetypes’, available to purchase, the first time a complete outfit by Throup has been on sale under his own label. This includes the Stockwell Jeans, Stockwell Denim Jacket, Stockwell T-shirt and Skull Rucksack. A highly conceptual work, “New Object Research is about designing processes rather than products.” Head over to the gallery and look out for Aitor Throup’s full Design Manifesto later today for more insight on this fascinating project.
