Barron and Larcher were modernists and the timelessness quality of their respective designs has outlived the years. In fact there always has been an appetite for a revival of their patterns. This appetite is being met by an exciting collaboration between the Crafts Study Centre, University for the Creative Arts (UCA), which holds a preeminent collection of their work, and Christopher Farr Cloth. The latter has breathed new life into 6 chosen designs by launching a range of screen-printed fabric this year. It will be a turning point for an understanding of the work of these little-known interwar textile artists.
Christopher Farr have recently moved to a new expanded space in Chelsea Wharf and will open their doors during LDF with an exciting installation by Tord Boontje showcasing his new work for this collaboration between Christopher Farr, Moroso and Studio Tord Boontje.
