Chapter 4: OK-RM
The fourth chapter of Daybed highlights the use of the bed as a display mechanism to present a body of work by OK-RM, a London-based studio founded by Oliver Knight and Rory McGrath. In this chapter Julie Peeters invites another design practice into her project, to explore how a (living) archive can be presented today. OK-RM focusses on developing new methods of collaborative design and communication, constantly redefining what it means to work together. This is reflected in the objects that their work generates as well as the debate and dialogue, introspection and exploration that are bringing them to life. Augmenting the experience of printed matter through a visual landscape of related material – ranging from finished work to dummy’s, printing experiments and special editions – this presentation is a generous look at a graphic design practice from the perspective of fellow graphic designer.
