Unnatural Desires: Skoglund, Du Pasquier and Sowden

There are many things to love about 80's art and design...color and pattern is number one (and two, we suppose) in our book. We lived with geometries and neon, synthetic aesthetics that were completely and unapologetically designed for the sake of design. We love the excess, here are some favorites:

Sandy Skoglund, Revenge of the Goldfish

1981 Nathalie Du Pasquier textile design

George Sowden clock, Objects for the Electronics Age

Sandy Skoglund, Gathering Paradise

1984 Du Pasquier design

Skoglund's Cats in Paris

George Sowden, Objects for the Electronics Age clock
