Max Clendinning, designer, has burnt his polystyrene sausage seating, is changing his totally white low-lying living-room into burnished gold and has changed his primary yellow studio into this new Indian red and richly carpeted affair. He has rediscovered tables, chairs and comfort, covering chairs in deep pile with velvet and lacquer paint, making unit, table, lamp and unifying it all with a mural. Originally inspired by the Islamic carpets at the Hayward, it changed course into something far more freewheeling.
