Bodo Sperlein X Jon Day + Katie Phillips

We teamed up with photographer Jon Day and stylist Katie Phillips to create some beautifully presented editorial shots for our brand new website.

 

As a studio we love collaborating with diverse creative individuals. With a clear idea to photograph the Contour and Hadron, Katie also chose to adorn the scenes with other pieces from our collections. Jon Day's vision of using light to cast dramatic shadows has created a striking setting for our design products. 

The raw concrete surface accentuates the delicate qualities of the porcelain and fine bone china. Both Jon and Katie's playful approach was to develop a composition that presents our products as collectively building a sculptural narrative. 

 

Taking our objects out of their traditional context of a home interior, each piece juxtaposes their conventional position, pushing the boundaries of product placement. The Hadron has been designed to not simply illuminate a space but as a sculptural interior object with an elegant and striking presence when both switched on and off, something that Jon and Katie have captured in these images.

Jon Day's clean aesthetic and expressive use of lighting exposes the distinct spirit of the objects he shoots.

 

Here's a selection of some of our favourite images by Jon Day and scenes that Katie Phillips has styled.

 

We previously collaborated with Jon Day as part of a photoshoot for Loewe’s new BILD 7, introducing a new visual language to Loewe's marketing material.

Katie's cool minimalist visual language and eye for composition challenges the every day interior setting. Carefully considered arrangements and placement of each object present dynamic abstracted scenes.
