Robert Storey

a day in the life

Hello Mr. Magazine - - TABLE OF CONTENTS - Pho­tog­ra­phy by TEREZA CERVENOVÁ

Put sim­ply, Robert Storey cre­ates a space with which his clients can show their best work. From small-scale set de­sign for pub­li­ca­tions like i-D, to iconic re­tail giants like Kenzo, Nike, and Louis Vuit­ton, to pala­tial in­stal­la­tions like a Christopher Kane run­way show at Tate Mod­ern, to re­cent for­ays into fur­ni­ture de­sign – to say Storey's work is the projects or clients may be, and whilst al­ways play­ing the sup­port­ing role, so to speak, Storey's cre­ations have a dis­tin­guish­able aes­thetic that may in part ex­plain their en­dur­ing ap­peal.

StoreyS­tu­dio’s sin­gu­lar ap­proach to spa­tial de­sign has it­self gained a fol­low­ing in the de­sign world in a man­ner both quick and re­mark­able. Min­i­mal­ist forms fuse with vivid color rem­i­nis­cent of Dan Flavin, Don­ald Judd, James Tur­rell, and Le Cor­bus­ier.

Af­ter a year learn­ing the hard-and-fast ways of New York City, he de­cided to make his way back to Lon­don where he stud­ied, set­ting up his epony­mous stu­dio from his bed­room at the ten­der age of 23. Al­most a decade later, Robert Storey has been in­cluded in Bri­tish Vogue’s Power list, Busi­ness of Fash­ion’s 500 list, and is frequently de­scribed as “one to watch.” Here, in East Lon­don, Hello Mr. spends a day with him in his stu­dio.
