Tracey Neuls Clerkenwell Design Week

Clerkenwell design weekTracey Neuls Above, an image of my beloved object, “A perfume gift for you”. "I was at a flea market and amongst a table of a million and one things, this tiny object winked at me. I remember wondering what the hell it was and when I delved in deeper, I loved it even more. Inside this nondescript 1960’s hand held box were tiny, beautiful, lengths of perfume. Each one had a coloured bulb on the end, delicate and fragile yet with the instruction to please break them. On so many levels of design and emotion, this little box of samples delivers; amazing to look at, the feel in the hand and then to smell and carry around with you on your body all day long. This little box makes me wonder about where design is today in consideration of this 60 year old design. How could something, which was designed to be gratis, have so much care and attention put into the design? Enough that someone didn’t throw it away after so many years. I would have loved to be in the boardroom discussing this little object and the brief it had to fulfil."Tracey Neuls, Clerkenwell Design Week IMG_3776 IMG_3777 IMG_3780Max Fraser inspired us all with an installation that studies why and what objects we as designers hold dear to our hearts. With little instruction, 26 designers were asked to submit an object that we loved. Interestingly, most of the objects were connected to memories and found beautiful in no describable words. Not a single piece that was presented had any monetary value either, another interesting connection. If you are around Clerkenwell Design Week, checking out the goods and its new location, do stop into 155 Clerkenwell to experience the passion for good design, food and wine. Max Fraser's exhibition is on until the end of the week. Tracey pictured with designer Benjamin Hubert
