Modern Design in Britain

The Ken Stradling Collection
Margaret Howell

To accompany a new exhibition of over 50 items from the Ken Stradling Collection curated by Margaret Howell, we are pleased to present a conversation between the collector and the designer. Shot on location in Bristol, the short film offers a glimpse into Stradling’s modern design archive, and sees the pair discuss not only the origins, but also the depth and breadth of his collection.

Made by regular Inventory contributor Rick Pushinsky, alongside Tim Bowditch, it captures the diversity of Stradling’s surroundings and touches upon the work of Marcel Breuer for Bristol furniture manufacturer Crofton Gane. A major component of the exhibition, these pieces will be complimented by a selection of studio pottery, glassware and everyday household objects. The show opens at Margaret Howell’s Wigmore Street store in London on Thursday October 15th, and runs until Saturday November 15th, 2015.
