Inspired by our recent trip to the ‘David Bowie Is’ exhibition at the V&A Museum, we searched ACHICA for home accessories that remind us of the master of reinvention himself. Call us Aladdin (in)Sane, but here are a few items that caught our eye today...
The Spaceman Red fine art photographic limited edition (above) by artist Dom McHarrie instantly brought back memories of Bowie’s Space Oddity. The edition is printed onto 280gsm Illford Gold Fibre Silk photographic stock, using millions of pixel-sized drops of ink per second, with an enhanced printer, specifically modified for fine art photography. There’s no doubt that the figure pictured could be Major Tom, and we think he would look particularly striking placed in a hallway.
With an unmistakable 70s vibe, the Foxy Faux Fur Shaggy rug by Nourison (above) is the perfect shade of flame red to match Bowie’s hair during this period. The chevron design also echoes the iconic cover of his sixth album Aladdin Sane, and Ziggy Stardust’s lighting bolt make up.
Bowie is pictured here in the video to Rebel Rebel, towards the end of his glam rock phase in 1974. We couldn’t help but think of the Anglepoise Duo 1227 Desk Lamp (above) when we saw this shot, as there’s no denying that both are style icons of their own kind. The Duo’s slim chrome frame and accents of fire-engine red mimic Bowie’s hair, outfit and guitar combination - and the neat black switch must be the closest design feature a lamp could have to an eye patch!
The ‘David Bowie is’ exhibition of the many outfits of David Bowie is on now at the V&A until 11 August 2013. Although the online tickets to ‘David Bowie is’ are sold out, there are a limited number of tickets available to buy each day at the door.
The museum is also opening its doors late on Friday 26 April, 2013 for an evening of Bowie-themed live performances, debates, one-off displays and installations, special guests, bars, food and guest DJs. We can’t wait…
