Ib Geertsen at Rocket, London

I reluctantly departed from London on Thursday after my very first visit to the fair city. Saw some great examples of modern design, including the Barbican, 2 Colombia Road, and my home base, the Zetter Hotel. More on those later, but first: Londoners shouldn’t miss the upcoming exhibit at Rocket Gallery: “Ib Geertsen, mobiles, paintings, screenprints” from 6 February to 28 March. This is the first London solo show by the iconic Danish artist who just celebrated his 90th birthday. Geertsen will be present for the preview 6-8 on Thursday 5 February.

For those not in the know, the Rocket is a contemporary art gallery with a soft spot for classic modern furniture, having shown work by Kjaerholm, Risom, and others.

As a typographic aside, I commend the Rocket for their consistent graphic identity, anchored by TheSans.
