Dandy

NORDISKA MUSÉET 2011

SITUATION

“What is a dandy?” That was the brief given to the studio by Nordiska Museet in Stockholm. Its intention was to fill its cavernous space with a theoretical expose of the notion of being a contemporary dandy, with some of the country’s top stylists and fashionistas giving their own take on one of this decade’s key trends.
Form Us With Love didn’t stop there though. There were more questions that needed answers. What did a dandy wear? How does a dandy live? Who is a dandy?

ACTION

Form Us With Love took its exploration of the museum’s 2011 exhibition of the same name and made it a part of the exhibition itself; a complementary piece of architectural scenography rather than interior architecture that simply juxtaposes the pieces displayed. Dismembered mannequins were fused with lacquered MDF boxes to create the sense that the viewer was witness to an unfinished contemporary sculpture.

OUTCOME

The resulting architecture of the museum’s Dandy exhibition dissected the dandy into its details to expose dandyism comprehensively. Reviews of the show were quick to note that the exhibition was carried confidently by its spacial design.
