Catalogue: Project Orange Architecture & Design
James Soane, Christopher Ash
Black Dog Pub., 2003 - Architecture - 127 pages
"Catalogue is the quirky title of this, the first collection of the work of Project Orange, the highly successful and innovative design and architecture practice. Project Orange, having demonstrated a keen interest in design and cultural issues through their work, referencing here, with tongues-in-cheeks the previous 'catalogues' of IKEA, Sears, Habitat, and the like. Believing that the question of 'style' is very important to the appreciation and success of their work, Project Orange enjoy designing stylishly. "Catalogue is the record of this enjoyment. The book sets out this stylishness, looking at contemporary ways of living where our domestic environments reflect what we have become accustomed to in hotel and restaurant design, and vis-a-versa. The cross-over from one way of living to another is, for them, and area of pleasurable discovery. Using a diverse palette of colours, materials and finishes Project Orange play with our expectations of the ways in which we think we should and would like to live.
