Adam Ant's lounge.
The design team of Powell-Tuck, Connor and Orefelt gained noteriety in 1981 when they redesigned McLaren and Westwood's shop at 430 Kings Road (the original location of SEX and Let It Rock) into World's End, a Lewis Carroll-esque surreal world of sloping floors and backward spinning clocks. This innovative design led them to be hired by 'the most beautiful man ever' ®, Adam Ant, to redecorate his new flat in London in 1982.
Pooling draperies, which were padded in the hems, made from Timney-Fowler fabric.
"David Connor's drawing style marked a move away from more precise presentation work and became influential in the early 80s, for example in the work of architect Zaha Hadid."
