A Look Inside Samuel Ross' SR_A Book, 'Object - Form. Form!'

Published Oct 04 2021 at 8:57 AM GMT
  • British artist, fashion and industrial designer Samuel Ross is best known for his work under his label A-COLD-WALL*, but ever since the multihyphenate unveiled SR_A (Samuel Ross & Associates) back in 2019, there's been a shift in his practices, tapping into the "progressive study of design and practical experience creation" that dominates his work under the SR_A division.
  • Now, Ross -- under the SR_A moniker -- has released his first book, titled Object - Form.
  • Form!.The 457-page book is more like an anthology of Ross' work, touching upon his artworks and studies in the worlds of fashion and design frequently while also zoning in on A-COLD-WALL* and its subsequent footwear, garment, and Pre-Fall/Winter 2021 lookbook.
  • Under the section "Contribution of the Zeitgeist -- Art," heart-felt letters to Ross written from dear friends and collaborators such as Takashi Murakami, Virgil Abloh, Futura, Daniel Arsham, Hans Ulrich Obrist, and more can be found, each decorating these tracing paper-like pages that add a technical feel to the book -- expected, given the publication's roots in A-COLD-WALL* and SR_A's design approach.
  • As we move on, Samuel Ross himself becomes the focus, with photography predominantly shot by Oliver Matich spanning dozens of pages.
