Man Ray Revolving Doors handkerchief made by Third Drawer Down Studio using collage artworks created in New York from 1916-1917. Their first appearance was at the Daniel Gallery in 1919. Hinged on a revolving stand, the prints produced an impressive optical effect as they rotated. The collages were again displayed in 1926, when a series of 105 prints were made, of which this set is number six. The second print of the set has been used, with the blue shape reminiscent of the lute in Man Ray's collage 'Involute'.
Since 2003 Third Drawer Down Studio has collaborated with the most prominent modern and contemporary artists of our time by translating their artwork into limited edition or open edition objects. From our humble beginnings of producing limited edition tea towels as prints on linen we questioned what made art to be art.
Our studio has collaborated with over 150 contemporary artists to create licensed objects for everyday use. Some of our collaborations thus far, include Louise Bourgeois, Ai Weiwei, Sam Francis, Yayoi Kusama and David Shrigley. Our extensive range of licensed objects and homewares are available in leading design and museum stores around the world.
Variations can occur between final printed colours on textiles
