in the post-panic of the recent brexit vote, i am reminded again of how people’s fearful emotions can get the best of them, even against their better judgement. the uk’s david collins studio‘s collaboration with italian furniture makers promemoria remains a symbol of collective power through their elegant ‘london collection’. as a striking metaphor for crossover co-operation, both players remained steadfast and confident in their aim; their respective identities and their expertise culminating in a beautifully balanced and proud product. i can only hope that this kind of sensibility will prevail; that social or cultural insecurities will not get in the way of relationships built on our combined and diverse strengths.
