My Beautiful Laundrette by Ian Berry

The installation My Beautiful laundrette would not have been possible without many amazing contributions from many talented people.

The first to mention is Luke Aan De Wiel, an experienced model maker, set builder, prop maker and all round top human being.

His work has predominantly consisted of providing creative, beautifully crafted solutions to the advertising industry (both stills and TV), the film and music industries. He has also worked extensively in the exhibition and editorial worlds.

He collaborated here with Ian Berry to make the washing machines for the laundrette and also helped with the installation.

Then of course there are the jeans, Pepe Jeans London have supplied many for Ian to work with over the last few years, of which he particularly likes using the washes from denim Pepe sends.

On the dryers, you may see Ian has tried a new technique. While known for his handcrafted, painstaking work cutting up pieces of denim, here Ian experimented with the super creative talented Moreno De Angelis to try lasering the denim to get the reflections of the washing machines opposite. Moreno is at the Iskoteca lab in Italy and is a creative genius with laundry methods as a brilliant chemist. This is a technology Ian is wishing to pursue with seeing the full potential and possibilities

A massive thanks to all.

 

Lewis Hamilton emulating his Icon by Ian Berry

   All through his career Lewis Hamilton has spoken fondly and passionately about Ayrton Senna, and has always been linked with the Brazilian. Lewis grew up wanting to emulate Ayrton when he was watching him as a young boy and this year his childhood dream came true by matching his thrice World Champion title. As someone who has kept Ayrton constantly talked about and keeping his name alive the Senna family wanted to give Lewis a personal gift to mark his achievement.   'Having seen how Lewis talks about Ayrton it is a great honour for me to know that to mark his achievement the family chose to present him with a piece of my work. It is a beautiful story, every time I see Lewis talk he talks about Ayrton, and especially this year. He has spent his life wanting to emulate him and now he has. To get that 'you made it, well done' from Ayrton's sister Viviane and family to represent his hero was a special moment and it is great that this symbolic moment of the realisation of the dream they chose the work I made. And to get Lewis's reaction was even more special.'   Lewis was presented Number 3 of 11 special Edition to the same scale as the original piece, specially printed onto denim with stitched edges, a leather patch personalised for him as well as personal messages lasered into the denim.
