About CultureLabel

CultureLabel.com brings together a hand-curated edit of the most stylish products and affordable art from hundreds of galleries, artists, independent stores and museums from around the world.

Our founding partners comprise iconic UK arts brands including Tate, V&A, Saatchi Gallery, Whitechapel Gallery and many more.

Back in 2007, we were young entrepreneurs with a simple but big idea: to create a great site where art, product, design, heritage, fashion, culture – and a whole lot more – collide. We wanted to create an online store that offers affordable style, and where money spent on shopping made a positive difference to the arts organisations you bought from.

Think of us as your creative department store; we curate the very best product from our arts partners’ shops and designers’ collections, then bring them together for you to browse and buy.

The price you pay with us is the same as if you go direct to our partners’ individual sites – the only difference is the ability to buy from all 200 in one basket.

Every single sale on CultureLabel.com helps to support some of the greatest arts and heritage organisations, of all sizes, in all kinds of places, directly funding a brilliant range of innovative work.

Michael Van Der Ham – Commission

 

We were recently been commissioned by the talented designer Michael Van Der Ham, a regular now on the fashion circuit showing his collections at London Fashion Week to create a new website to showcase the designers collections. Currently still in development the website features an instant play video background to make best use of the catwalk show videos that were shot of his last two collections.

Michael graduated from the MA fashion course at Central Saint Martins. He has worked at Sophia Kokosalaki and Alexander McQueen.

Career highlight: “Vogue photographing me at my studio.”

Design signatures: “I like to mismatch different references in each item of clothing. His autumn/winter 2009 collection is a juxtaposition of elements from different decades in fashion. He made each dress like a 3D collage of clashing colours, textures, weights of fabric and cut.”

The Draw, New York – Commission

We have recently been commissioned to work on a new and exciting project for a brand new website focusing on furniture and accessories created by artisans and sourced from across the globe.

The project is to build the brand from the ground up with the team in New York and London, creating a full identity and multi user e-commerce platform in Magento.

More to follow soon….

Diners Club International – Commission

Our long standing client ‘Form Office’ recently completed a project for internationally renowned credit card brand ‘Diners Club International’. We were asked to arrange art direction and photography for the project, above are some of the results from the day of shooting.

Apposing – Commission

We have been commissioned by App Agency ‘Apposing’, the agency behind the award winning CSL Sofa company app, The Carphone Warehouse ‘Bill Angel’ app and the Pretty Green app to develop their new online presence using WordPress as the core platform. Last year saw us work in partnership on an apps project we won for the BBC, when we were approached this year by them to develop their online presence we were naturally excited to be once again working together.

More updates to follow on this project.

Art HK Founder Tim Etchells Launches New Sydney Contemporary Art Fair

Less than one month after Australian art dealers Vasili Kaliman and Jarrod Rawlins of KALIMANRAWLINS gallery announced the launch of a new Australian art fair to be held in Melbourne, the launch of another new Australian art fair has just been announced by Tim Etchells, founder of ART HK.

The new biennial contemporary fair will be called Sydney Contemporary and will be launched in April 2013. Featuring established and emerging galleries from Sydney and overseas, the fair will cater to a broad spectrum of experienced and potentially new collectors.

Sydney Contemporary will showcase between 60 and 80 local, national and international galleries in its inaugural year. The fair will feature unique sections including New Contemporary – dedicated to the artist run initiatives and innovative young galleries, and Paper Contemporary, a curated showcase of prints and limited edition photography from leading galleries.

According to Etchells, “Sydney Contemporary represents the first time this city has hosted a serious, high-end art fair. We expect it to play a significant role in helping to focus attention on the Sydney art scene in the same way that ART HK focused attention on Asian art. The fair provides a vital new platform from which galleries, artists and collectors can deepen and grow networks and relationships both with local contacts and throughout the broader Asia Pacific region,“

The inaugural Sydney Contemporary will be held from Friday 12th until Sunday 14th April 2013 at the Hordern Pavillion and Royal Hall of Industries at Moore Park in Sydney’s eastern suburbs, with the Vernissage held on the evening of Thursday 11th April 2013.

Sydney Contemporary is organised by Art Fairs Australia Pty Ltd, a company founded by Tim Etchells of SME London Ltd. Etchells is founder of ART HK, the Hong Kong international art fair, which has grown to become a major fixture on the international art calendar.
