Fashion duo Antoni & Alison have brought their unique sense of humour to a new collection of cushions, which they describe as ‘soft sculpture’. There are four designs – each one is double sided and features a set of contrasting slogans – ‘happy’ and ‘sad’, ‘dull’ and ‘interesting’, ‘stupid’ and ‘clever’ and ‘avant-garde’ and ‘banana’.
The launch has been timed to coincide with the duo’s participation in Open House London Weekend on Saturday, September 19th, when they will throw open the doors of their Southwark townhouse to the public. Pop down for a sneak preview of the cushions and to meet the duo.
‘We had been asked many times, “Why don’t you make more homewares?”,’ says Antoni. ‘Our answer was always the same – we didn’t know. So to celebrate our taking part in the Open House event, now we have. We like squares and a cushion was the perfect shape to start with.’
