Working with Diesel
We’re super excited to have worked on The Diesel Paper, which celebrates Diesel’s first collaboration with The Serpentine Gallery’s Future Contemporaries. Future Contemporaries is London’s first group for young collectors and those interested in contemporary culture. This international club includes like-minded people from the worlds of art, design, fashion, music, business, technology, entertainment and the media.
The Diesel Paper explores some of the diverse members involved Future Contemporaries as well as introducing some of Diesel’s own Future Contemporary faces who are important and brave in their own fields of artistry. Contributers include music producer/designer William Richard Green, designer Clare Barrow and musician Dan Lywood.
The theme for this first edition broadsheet, Texture, is inspired by the Serpentine Pavilion building, which was designed by Herzog & de Meuron and Ai Weiwei. The ‘textures’ can be seen through the geometric shapes of the body, skin and muscle in the ‘Dancers’ shoot shot by William Selden as well as the profile images taken of the Future Contemporaries. Diesel has showcased not just their faces but textured elements of their own bodies such as Amber Le Bon’s and Katie Eary hair, to pierced elongated ear lobes of Clare Barrow’s portrait.
