The official blog for everything relating to the former Strychnin Crew & Urban Nation
Yesterday saw the official press launch of CultureLabel.com at Shoreditch House in London. CultureLabel.co is “the first multi-brand retail platform to showcasee the best artist-designed products and limited editions from leading culture brands”
Strychnin Gallery is proud to have been asked to be one of the first wave of museums, galleries and institutions to work with CultureLabel.com. Also participating are the British Museum, London Design Festival, Saatchi Gallery, Tate, and Serpentine Gallery among others.
The black pieces of Seymour’s chess set ready for a game
Among the featured products from Strychnin are individual chess pieces by Seymour, along with the chess set he created for the “Midsummer Night’s Madness” show in July. The chess set, along with the first batch of individual pieces, was on display at the press launch, and no doubt got a large amount of attention!
The white King, with embossed presentation box
The black Queen
One of the eight different Pawns available!
Each piece is has an edition of 25 black and 25 white, and comes in an embossed presentation box. The certificate of authenticity, printed on gold foil, is mounted to the reverse of the box lid.
We also have brand-new breakfast sets produced by Christian Rothenhagen, aka deerBLN.
Christian’s breakfast sets are, like all his works, inspired by Berlin and his love for the city he was born in. The second set uses a section of his piece “Corner Round My House” which is currently in the permanent collection at Strychnin Gallery in Berlin.
Finally, the last pieces featured on for the launch of CultureLabel.com are two prints by Natalie Shau – “Pearls” and “Empty Dreams” These high-quality prints on plexiglass are signed and numbered by Natalie.
