The Frugality x Simone Brewster matchboxes have landed. Two years in the making (not that we’re perfectionists or anything!) and we are so proud of these.
Simone Brewster is a London-based artist and designer who creates large scale, statement, sculptural furniture, objets d’art, and jewellery. As part of the African Diaspora, her work marries the European influences of her education with an aesthetic understanding of her Caribbean heritage, bridging the gap between these two histories.
Brewster’s work has been exhibited at the British Embassy as an example of British Design Talent, she has been profiled in Vogue UK, Vanity Fair and her work has appeared at the Royal Academy Exhibition.
This matchbox design is based on artwork originally created with inks and acrylic on paper and canvas, these expressly abstracted paintings conjure the beauty and complexity of the female form and psyche.
