BENTLEY ELEMENTS

Light exhibited at Design Miami 2014: Concept, creative direction, identity, film and photography 

Bentley Motors is a company at the pinnacle of British handmade performance, combining the best of craftsmanship and technology with a culture of dedication to excellence. Looking to engage with the lifestyle and design media, Bentley invited Campbell-Rey to bring both its institutional values and an increased knowledge of the car’s physical qualities to a new audience. The result is Bentley Elements, a series of art and design commissions to be exhibited on an annual basis at cultural happenings around the world.

Campbell-Rey chose Light as the first element to introduce the series, taking inspiration from the neon inspection bays in the Bentley factory. These tunnels of light are not only visually striking, but also represent the physical expression of the brand's dedication to excellence. Selecting and commissioning Massimo Uberti, a Milan-based conceptual artist renowned for his reality-defying architectural light installations, Campbell-Rey worked with Uberti to create an installation that reflects the touch of the craftsman with a classic trestle table surrounded by the pure lines of a factory building. The artwork was crafted by local artisans in hand-blown white neon on site in Miami.

Guests were collected by a fleet of Bentley Mulsannes, where they enjoyed an introductory film to the project on the in-car iPads before entering the raw gallery space, chosen in order to create an oasis of calm and reflection, mirroring Bentley’s ethos of whispering luxury.

Campbell-Rey was responsible for the artistic concept, overall creative direction and project management, in addition to creating the printed collateral material and art directing the accompanying photography and films, which can be viewed below.

Legends in light

Exhibition at MATE Museo Mario Testino in Lima, Peru: Concept and curation

MATE is the museum and arts foundation established by photographer Mario Testino to house a permanent collection of his work, alongside a rotating schedule of exhibitions from international and Peruvian artists. In collaboration with Testino, Campbell-Rey conceived and curated Legends in Light, an exhibition showcasing 20 works by legendary Hollywood photographer George Hurrell.

George Hurrell is considered a master of studio portraiture and his photographs have come to define the glamour and elegance of the Golden Age of Hollywood. With a prolific career that began in the late 1920s, Hurrell immortalised the most iconic stars of the era including Clark Gable, Joan Crawford, Greta Garbo and Katharine Hepburn, securing their legacy as gods and goddesses of the silver screen. The exhibition is the first in the Los Maestros de la Fotografía series, celebrating the greatest photographers of the 20th century at MATE.

Alongside the exhibition, Campbell-Rey worked closely with the Hurrell Foundation to create a limited edition of the artworks, which were printed in the original format of 30x40 inches, and produced in a run of 50.

ABC DCS

Published by Assouline with a foreword by Madonna: Design and art direction

Originally intended as a portfolio book for VIP clients, Campbell-Rey worked with the late David Collins and his architectural studio to expand the concept and create a coffee table book entitled ABC DCS that explores the myriad inspirations found in Collins' award-winning interior design schemes which include The Wolseley, The Blue Bar at The Berkeley, Claridge's Bar and the penthouse suite at The Connaught Hotel. The book centres around an alphabet of design created by Collins himself, celebrating the influences he attached to each letter.

Campbell-Rey enlisted Assouline as the publishing partner, and led on the book's design and art direction. A special edition of the book was created with a navy linen slipcase and gold foil embossed custom lettering.

Design, art direction and branding

Founded in 1884, Bulgari is one of the oldest Italian jewellery houses, synonymous with the glamour of La Dolce Vita and the allure of cinema's golden age. The brand's bold, architectural fine jewellery designs demonstrate a mastery of coloured stones, often referencing ancient Greek and Roman motifs as well as Art Deco themes. Since the mid-1990s, Bulgari has expanded its offering to include accessories, fragrances and eyewear, and was acquired by LVMH in 2011.

Campbell-Rey has worked with Bulgari on a wide range of projects, including invitation and catalogue designs, press materials, art direction for imagery, branding for the Bulgari Epicurea food festival as well as overseeing the design of The Glam Culture, a book celebrating Bulgari's glittering heritage.
